The only bad thing to say about these is that they aren’t the Prince-motivated uniforms from a few years ago. Love the trees on the jersey and shorts.

The uniforms and court will cause it to feel like the Nets are back in East Rutherford, N.J. All that will be missing is Sly Fox. In all seriousness, the Nets worked effectively mixing their Long Island and New Jersey roots, while additionally adding a touch of Brooklyn.

3. Philadelphia 76ers

Non-Sixers fans may have been confused by the different-colored blocks on the side of the jersey. Yet, the nod to the Spectrum was a good thought and executed to perfection.

2. Atlanta Hawks

You don’t regularly see the combination of a team’s city/name and logo on the front of a jersey. Yet, similar to the Raptors, the Hawks had the option to pull it off with an incredible throwback logo.

It’s just correct that the NBA’s best time team to watch has the best City Edition unis. Indeed, there’s a ton going here, however, the colors and hive design are so acceptable. Can hardly wait for the first LaMelo Ball-to-Miles Bridges alley-oop in these.
