Dammit, feels like it’s been a while since we’ve seen any NBA uniform leaks.
Just when we thought we were done for the season, Twitter user @OKCTracker arrives and drops off 18 Leaked Edition Won Uniforms for the fast approaching 2020-21 season. OKCTracker tweeted each of these uniforms to his feed earlier tonight the props.
WATCH: All 18 NBA Earned Edition 2021 uniforms leaked
The won uniform, which is making a comeback after a year off last season, is reserved for teams lucky enough to qualify for the playoffs from the previous season, this year is no different, but we have also seen uniforms for two teams that made it last year – were these prototypes just in case? Are they just going to wear them anyway? No idea, and that’s the beauty of a leak, we can guess.
Let’s go through them team by team:
Brooklyn turns black with Nets across the front, beautiful and what appears to be a New York subway sign style design.
The Boston Celtics, who lack third colors to put on their uniforms, have now switched to neon green, apparently. Green on the green team name and player number is always a bad idea.
I could have sworn the Dallas Mavericks had worn this uniform before – it’s so similar to their regular outfit that it’s almost not worth wearing it. Don’t get me wrong, this is definitely not a bad design, far from it!
Now it’s a uniform. The Milwaukee Bucks embracing the deer motif, fear the deer, the antlers running down the side of the uniform from the knees to the arms – they feel like this should be their full-time design. It’s a shame it’s cast after the season, but I have a feeling we’ll be seeing this Bucks style again in the future, recolored in a million different ways as future City and Earned designs.
The Denver Nuggets unveil the retro red, white, blue and gold color scheme here, taking time back to their first seasons as a franchise. Like.
Not much to say about the Houston Rockets and their Earned Edition uniform for 2020-21, a black version of their usual outfit.
We knew the Los Angeles Lakers would try to work on their black uniform somehow and I’m glad they were able to bring it in as their Earned Edition set, the Black Mamba returns in 2021.
If you’ve ever wondered what one of the dullest brands in the league without a color would look like, wonder no more, the LA Clippers are happy to give you a look. Gray with white letters and trim, they threw a ribbon of red and blue on each side.
Sounds fair, doesn’t it? And yes, I prefer the Magic dressed in black with stripes, but it works well with a very horizontal logo on the chest and the star pattern on the sides. A great look for the Orlando Magic!
Miami wore white, black, red, pink and a rainbow but never gold and that changes in 2021 with their new uniform in gold and black Earned Edition – no, no red on that -this. Bumblebee agrees.
Welp, we all insisted on a return to purple. Are you happy? I’m not. A giant purple chevron from the knees to the pits (that’s good the pits), I’m just going to focus on the positive here – the Toronto Raptors are ready to embrace purple again, I’ll accept that’s a first step and they’re ‘I’m gonna improve it from here.
Cream as a base, we’re guessing as a nod to the Declaration of Independence like they’ve done in the past, and a giant freedom bell to hold player numbers – the Philadelphia 76ers are really running their city and its historic role in the founding of the United States. Appropriate considering their name, of course.
What are all shades of gray? The Portland Trail Blazers thought they’d take red out of their look, we’re not sure why, but I guess there’s a symbolism here – without that context I’m scratching my head.
While many think of Utah as a purple team, there are a few of us who can’t help but imagine their old green and gold every time we think back to that team. Utah wore green and gold for a few seasons in the ’80s and they’re returning to that look here for their 2021 Earned Edition set.
A simple but awesome look for the Indiana Pacers – pair it with their City Edition uniform and you’ve got a great one-two combo (with blue instead of gray, of course… what are we doing here?)
The main Oklahoma City set is so bland that anything they come up with as a Statement, City, or Earned uniform looks awesome in comparison. Here we are again, and yet another two-tone set in this collection, just two shades of blue, no orange, no gold.
San Antonio goes to San Antonio. Nothing wrong with this design, it’s been done over and over again. Of course, Spurs didn’t even make the playoffs last season, so it’s very possible they won’t even wear it in 2020-21. I don’t think anyone really cares.
We believe, however, that we could lose this set. The Phoenix Suns made their way into the 1990s with this modern take on a retro classic. Purple and black, the sun streaked back on the jersey and shorts, loves the little things too, including the “PHOENIX” wordmark on the front of the shorts.
So that’s it, I mean it’s got to be over at this point, we’ve now seen all the Icon, Association, Statement, City, Classic and now Earned Edition uniforms (come on… six? That’s getting silly) that the La NBA has in store for its 2020-21 season. Nothing to come as far as I know.
