The Golden State Warriors will wear Crossover alternate uniforms for select Sunday games during the 2016-17 as a nod to the Warriors “Run TMC” era of the early 90’s, the team announced today. The Warriors will first wear the Crossover alternate uniforms on the road on Sunday, October 30 when the team plays the Suns in Phoenix. Crossover alternate jerseys for every player on the roster are available for purchase at warriors.com starting Monday, September 26 at 7:00 a.m. PT and available at the Warriors Team Store later in the week.
The new Crossover alternate uniform harkens back to the “Run TMC” era Warriors of the early 90’s and features the very same diagonal lettering worn by the team then, mixed with the color scheme and design of the jerseys the team wears on the road now. The diagonal lettering used on the Crossover alternate uniforms was used during the 1988-89 to 1996-97 seasons. This Crossover jersey not only symbolizes a crossover of eras, but also a nod to Run TMC’s Tim Hardaway, who was known for his “Killer Crossover.”
The Warriors will wear the Crossover alternate uniform for the following games:
- Sunday, October 30th at Phoenix
- Sunday, November 13th vs. Phoenix
- Sunday, January 22nd at Orlando
- Sunday, March 5th at New York
- Sunday, March 26th vs. Memphis
- Sunday, April 2nd vs. Washington
“Run TMC” – Tim (Hardaway), Mitch (Richmond) and Chris (Mullin) were together for two seasons (1989-90 & 1990-91) and scored a combined 62 points per game in 1989-90. In 1990-91, each player ranked in the Top 11 in scoring in the NBA, forming the highest-scoring trio in the NBA with an average of 71.1 points per game. The Warriors that season finished with a 44-38 record and upset the second-seeded Spurs in the First Round of the 1991 NBA Playoffs. The trio contributed 99 points in the Warriors’ 162-158 win over Denver on November 2, 1990, which remains the highest-scoring non-overtime game in NBA history.
The Warriors will also continue their Slate Nights, presented by DraftKings, where the team will wear their Slate alternate uniforms for all Saturday home games and most Saturday away games during the regular season. The Warriors will also have a special Christmas Holiday uniform when the team plays in Cleveland against the Cavaliers on Christmas Day.
