The Golden State Warriors have revealed the latest new uniform for the 2020-21 NBA season.
The team’s City Edition Nike jerseys are set to celebrate the team’s 47 seasons in Oakland by focusing on the “We Believe” playoff run in 2007.
Oakland is and will always be a part of our team’s identity.
“Oakland Forever," presented by @Rakuten, is a nod to the We Believe era and its turning point in Oakland’s basketball history.
To honor the Town, we partnered with Nike to put a spin on these classic uniforms. pic.twitter.com/d7nUAJLbzM

“Inspired by the uniforms worn by the team from 1997-2010, the new City Edition jerseys feature Oakland across the front of the uniform, where the team played its home games from 1972-1996 and 1997-2019,” the Warriors explained in their announcement. “The era included the celebrated We Believe playoff run in 2007, when the Warriors became the first eight-seed to defeat a one-seed in a best-of-seven playoff series with a 4-2 upset over the Dallas Mavericks.”
The team also partnered with jersey-sponsor Rakuten to unveil a new outdoor basketball court in Oakland, along with other community initiatives. The Oakland Forever court will make its debut alongside the City Edition jerseys.
We called Oakland home for 47 seasons, and it will forever be part of our DNA.
Introducing the Oakland Forever court.
