Making the NBA postseason now comes with an opportunity beyond competing for a champion. Nike, now back at the helm as the league’s official on-court outfitter, is providing playoff teams with a special edition uniform.
Fittingly titled the Earned Edition uniforms, Nike’s budding kits have been rewarded to the NBA’s 2017-18 playoff teams. Marking a sharp juxtaposition of each team’s Statement and City Edition uniforms, this union is meant to spark a bond between the franchise’s heritage and modern-day successes.
Select teams will debut their Earned garms during the NBA’s 2018 Christmas Day schedule. Others will don the new uniforms in games shortly thereafter.
