On Monday, the NBA revealed this year’s ‘City Edition’ NBA jerseys for all 30 teams. That means the Celtics are adding another alternate uniform to their rotation.
According to the NBA Locker Vision website, “The Boston Celtics new City Edition uniform is part of the 2021-22 Nike NBA City Edition Moments Mixtape theme. In celebration of the NBA’s 75th Anniversary, this on-court collection was designed to showcase the iconic moments of each franchise. This uniform pays homage to those iconic moments with subtle nods to some of the greatest to ever wear green.”
The description goes on to identify elements of the uniform that pay homage to different eras in the team’s history. Here’s a closer look at what went into this new design.
The Celtics also tweeted some photos with the current team modeling the uniforms.
