The Sixers are turning the clock back to the 1970s with their Classic Edition uniform this season. The throwback look replicates the jersey worn by Philadelphia during the 1970-71 season and it features a special "Seventy Sixers" wordmark design on the front of the jersey.
The Hornets will bring back their iconic purple uniforms this season to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the jersey's debut during the 1994-95 season. The 2019-20 edition of the uniform will echo the past, while also incorporating some new elements.
The Cavaliers will send it back to the mid-1990s with their Classic Edition uniforms this season. The design features a modern take on the "fan-favorite" black uniforms that debuted during the 1994-95 season.
The team will debut the new uniform during the team's home opener on Oct. 26 and it will be worn seven other times throughout the regular season.
