The 2017 NBA Champion Golden State Warriors will wear Chinese Heritage alternate uniforms for select games during the 2017-18 season as a nod to the strong Chinese culture in the Bay Area, the team announced today.

The suspension bridge detail, which has appeared on previous Warriors uniform Editions, remains on the shorts. The text “Prosperity” is also proudly written above the tag on the jerseys that players will wearing on the court and on authentic jerseys at warriors.com and the Warriors Team Store. “The Bay,” which appears on the front of the jersey, recognizes the importance of the entire Bay Area to the Warriors organization. In coming seasons, the Warriors will continue to use “The Bay” uniform highlighting a variety of heritages special and unique to the Bay Area.
