The Portland Trail Blazers turn 50 this year, and the franchise is celebrating via a Classic Edition uniform. The jersey features throwback elements, with Blazers vertically placed in a retro font and an off-center number. The red is a slightly different shade than the team’s existing Statement uniforms. The styling matches the ‘77 Championship uniforms.
