Technology meets tradition in new Nike Thunder uniforms
OKLAHOMA CITY (KOKH) —
The Thunder have debuted their new Nike edition uniforms.
The new uniforms stay fairly traditional for Oklahoma City in design and color. The new jerseys feature modified cuts on the back shoulder and at the hemline of the shorts, for a greater range of motion and feature OKC on the belt line of the shorts.
The 2017-2018 season sees the debut of new rules for jerseys. Teams will have the choice of what jersey they would like to wear for home games. The opposing team will then be allowed to pick a jersey that contrasts the home team's jersey.
Nike has named the new jerseys. The white jersey, formerly the "home" jersey, is now refered to as a "Association" edition. The blue jersey will be called the "Icon" edition.
Two alternate jerseys will be debuted for the Thunder later this fall. The team's sunset jersey, created by former NBA jersey partner Adidas, has been retired.
