Just like the two weeks after the video game clearance, it will inherit the previous rare props, Nike has brought a new exclusive right for the team that successfully entered the NBA playoffs last season:
On the road to the championship this season, 16 teams that successfully made the playoffs last season will have the right to play in the Earned Edition jersey in the second half of the NBA 2018-19 season.
The new jerseys are inspired by the theme jerseys or city jerseys of each team, and are intended to show fans the rich history and current achievements of the team. Teams participating in the Christmas Wars will complete the debut of the achievements jersey on that day, and the rest of the teams will also wear their own achievements jerseys soon.
The NBA Achievement Edition jersey will be available on Nike’s official website, Nike Tmall flagship store, NBA Tmall flagship store, and designated stores starting December 25. Don’t miss it if you are interested!
At the same time, I also wish that the remaining teams can enter the playoffs this season, have their own achievement version of the jersey in the near future, and dedicate to the fans who have long supported!
Teams wearing the Nike NBA Achievement Edition for the 2018-2019 season:
Boston Celtics jersey
Boston’s Achievement Edition jersey is designed to pay tribute to the dominant Celtics in the 1980s. It combines the classic green of the Celtics with the elements of the 80s warm-up jacket.
Cleveland Cavaliers jersey
Cleveland’s achievement jerseys complement their history of establishing homes on the shores of Lake Erie. This color scheme is a portrayal of Cleveland fans who support the team without fear of winter.
Indiana Pacers jersey
Indiana’s achievement jersey pays homage to their local classic racing culture. The words “Always Lead” printed above the jersey label come from their urban version of the jersey.
