National Basketball Association eliminating home-road uniform designations

That means teams don't necessarily have to choose white as their primary home uniform- they can opt to wear a colored uniformed for the majority of their home games if they so desire.

The first two editions of the NBA uniforms, which will be introduced by teams this summer and will make their on-court debut at the start of the season, are the Association and Icon editions.

Nike first announced that they would be getting into the business of making National Basketball Association uniforms in June 2015, and since then, they have spent countless hours working directly with National Basketball Association players to create uniforms for each team.

Teams will have, at least, four jersey options to choose from in each game, according to a report from ESPN's Nick DePaula. This resulted in altering construction of the back, altering the hemlines of the bottom of the top and shorts, and moving the armholes, neck seams, and side seams.

"The mental advantage of a quality uniform is priceless", said Kyrie Irving, via press release.

Roger Federer 'always believed' he could win again
Tennis great Roger Federer will play for his eighth Wimbledon title when he faces Marin Cilic in the final of the 2017 edition. Sunday's straight-sets cruise meant he was the first man since Bjorn Borg in 1976 to win the title without dropping a set.

As part of that eight-year deal, Nike was able to secure the ability to have its logo on all the jerseys. "I welcome any competitive advantage on the court and the new Nike NBA uniforms deliver on the feedback that we've provided". The uniforms were made with recycled polyester from recycled bottles and "alpha yarns".

But judging by the image of the Golden State Warriors jersey released by Nike, just as was the case when it took over the NFL's uniforms in 2012, changes will be subtle and probably not easily discernible by the casual fan. I'm sticking with home (white, even if the home team is wearing its road jersey), road (color, even if the road team is wearing its home jersey) and alternate.

The league's increasingly intense 82-game season led Nike to employ 3D body maps of players, including heat and sweat maps.

A lot of changes are coming to the NBA's uniforms beginning this 2017-2018 season, with the most impactful addition being the introduction of on-jersey advertisements. Keep it locked for more.
