The Portland Trail Blazers are the latest team to reveal a new uniform design for the 2020-21 season.
The Blazers unveiled on Thursday their Nike City Edition design, which pays homage to the team’s home state of Oregon. According to the team, “the uniform celebrates the unique beauty of Oregon’s landscape as well as acknowledging and honoring the tribal nations throughout what is now considered Oregon who have called this land their home from the beginning.”
With “Oregon” stitched across the chest of the uniform in an iconic font, the earth tone colors were chosen to represent the, “beautiful landscape of Oregon.”
In addition, the Blazers and their jersey-sponsor Biofreeze will, “donate a portion of the net proceeds from jersey sales to the Native American Youth and Family Center (NAYA), a Portland-area nonprofit working to enhance the diverse strengths of Native youth and families through cultural identity and education.”
