The Portland Trail Blazers were part of a new Nike jersey unveil Wednesday, with each team that made last year’s NBA Playoffs getting a new “Earned Edition” jersey. Portland’s isn’t quite new, rather an all-red variation of their primarily black and gray “City Edition” jerseys:
Utah’s “Earned” jersey is all green, Portland’s is all red, and since that’s real tough in the colorblind, Blazers aren’t wearing theirs until a few days after Christmas.— Casey Holdahl (@CHold) December 12, 2018
Per the Nike press release:
The new looks, which are variations of each team’s Statement or City Edition uniforms, aim to supply fans with a tangible claim to both their team’s heritage and current success streak.
