In celebration of the NBA’s 75th Anniversary season, the Portland Trail Blazers will be unveiling a new “City Edition” jersey to commemorate the championship-winning 1977 team, as well as the 1990 and 1992 teams that advanced to the NBA Finals.
According to the Blazers’ official website, the team will wear them throughout the month of November, starting with a Nov. 15 game against the Toronto Raptors.
This year’s City edition honors three of the most iconic achievements in franchise history – the 1977 NBA Championship and the 1990 and 1992 Western Conference Championships.https://t.co/idNjRbJvjn pic.twitter.com/XJKkSuxC17— Portland Trail Blazers (@trailblazers) November 1, 2021
This will be a part of the NBA’s “Moments Mixtape Nights” package that pays homage to legendary Blazers teams of past decades. The uniforms will honor the late Dr. Jack Ramsay with a plaid pattern on the side of the shorts, a gold trophy embedded onto the jersey, and a retro, 1990s Blazers-styled font across the chest, among many other specs.
Fittingly, the Blazers will be celebrating the 1992 NBA Finals team during a Nov. 17 matchup against the Chicago Bulls and the 1977 championship-winning team on Nov. 20th against the Philadelphia 76ers. They will then finalize it with a Nov. 30 matchup against the Detroit Pistons, in recognition of the 1990 group.
