MORE Jerseys to come this year?

Again?

According to Windy‘s Sunday Q&A in the PD. I guess we’ll have even more uni’s to look forward to this year.

Q: Hey, Brian: Do the Cavs have an alternate blue uniform this season, or do they just have the white home and wine away ones they unveiled recently? — Lauren, Cleveland

A: Hey, Lauren: No they won’t. There are plenty of obscure uniform rules within the NBA and one of them is you can’t have an alternate uniform for two years after you unveil a new uniform design. So there will be no alternate blue this season. However, the Cavs can still have special-edition uniforms and they’ll wear those several times. Like I said, the rules are obscure.

New Cavs Jersey Wrap up!

Home

Cavs unveiled their new uniforms yesterday to mixed reviews.  The uniforms are classic looking and basically look like the 1970 & and 1974 jerseys had a baby.

Jersey page has been updated  here.  And the new pages for the uniforms have been added here: Home & Road

Here’s What Cavs.com had to say:

CLEVELAND, OH – August 17, 2010 – The Cleveland Cavaliers unveiled the team’s new authentic uniforms for the 2010-11 season in front of an enthusiastic crowd of Twitter followers and others who attended the “Tweetup” event on Tuesday evening, hosted by the team. They were the first to see the “new expression of wine and gold” home and road authentic uniforms that reflect the colors and style elements from the earliest years of the Cavs.

The authentic adidas® uniforms feature a deep wine and bright gold that echo the hues from the early 1970s, with

a simplistic, yet bold, design and introduce several new and unique design elements. The front of the home white

Road

jersey displays a new official team wordmark “CAVALIERS” in wine across the chest, and the front of the road wine jersey the new wordmark reads “CLEVELAND” in white.

On both uniforms, special details make them distinctive. The Cavaliers DNA statement: “All for One. One for All.” is printed along the back of the inner-collar of the crew neck jersey, and the Cavaliers secondary logo “C-sword” appears on both sides of the shorts. The team will debut the uniforms when they take the court for the first 2010-11 preseason game on Tuesday, October 5th at 7:00 p.m. vs. the Charlotte Bobcats at Quicken Loans Arena.

For the “Tweetup,” @CavsDan (Cavaliers majority owner Dan Gilbert’s Twitter handle) invited Twitter followers to come together for the unveiling at Cadillac Ranch, a bar and eatery in downtown Cleveland, at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, August 17th. His tweet was immediately “re-tweeted” by many followers and the news of the special event spread across numerous social media platforms. The reveal took place as Cavs Legends Austin Carr and Campy Russell opened large gift boxes to lift out the new authentic uniforms for display.

“The ‘Tweetup’ was a fun and exciting way for the team to connect with some of our most passionate fans in a very direct way and reward them. Social media is a rapidly expanding space and we’re always looking for ways to use these fan-friendly, cool and effective new communications tools,” said Cavaliers and Quicken Loans Arena

Old is the New New

President, Len Komoroski. “We now have over 50,000 followers on Twitter and over 300,000 on Facebook alone. As an organization, we want to embrace new technology, break the traditional models and try new things. This is an example of that.”

The new team colors update and uniform designs also reflect the considerable feedback the team has received from fans and the popularity of the Cavaliers’ Hardwood Classic line of merchandise and uniforms. Those designs have featured retro styles and colors from the team’s earlier years. Replica player jerseys are available now at the Cavaliers Team Shop at The Q and online at cavs.com. The opportunity to purchase and/or order additional “swingman” and “authentic” game jerseys and shorts at cavs.com and the Cavaliers Team Shop will be available as soon as these versions are available from adidas®. (The team shop is temporarily located on the main concourse of The Q near the Time Warner Cable Entrance to the arena while the permanent team shop is undergoing an extensive renovation and expansion this summer.)

New Uniforms Next Year

Via Windy at the Plain Dealer

It looks like there will be a revamp of the current colors, jerseys and logos starting next year. We will probably get a peak at what they will be by the end of the year.  So there is one more reason to buy more LeBron Jerseys (if he stays) other than him switching to #6.

Here are the highlights:

  • Current metallic gold will be replace by a yellowish gold closer to the 70s color
  • The “Cavaliers” and “Cleveland” script across the chest of the jerseys will have a new design (rumored to be block letters).
  • Cavaliers Logo will change to feature “crossing swords” (no jokes please)

Ready Windy’s full article below:

“It may seem like no team in the NBA wears as many different uniforms as the Cavaliers. Well, there’s more — with completely different styles — on the way.

The Cavs are planning on slightly changing their team colors and also revamping their standard home and road uniforms for next season. The idea has been in the works for about two years, the amount of time the team must give the league before making a uniform adjustment, but the designs are not finalized.

It will not be a major change, team sources said, like seven years ago when the team brought back its current “new expression of wine and gold” and a new logo featuring crossing swords. The team’s logos will stay basically the same, but there’s going to be a brighter yellow featured.

Also, the front of the uniforms are expected to undergo a design change with a different presentation of the word “Cavaliers” on the home white and alternate blue uniforms and a different style of “Cleveland” on the wine road jerseys.

Currently, the Cavs use a pale shade of gold. That is one of the reasons why the gold has been less emphasized in recent years. There is virtually no gold used on the current floor design and very little on the standard uniforms. Blue has emerged as the team’s secondary color by default. The new gold color will be more vibrant, closer to the original gold the team used in the 1970s and early 1980s.

The team hopes to finalize and unveil its new uniforms by the end of the season.”

If LeBron Changes to #6, What Happens to His Nike Logo?

LeBron’s Nike logo prominently features his jersey number: 23.  If he does switch to #6, Nike will most likely be forced to change his signature.

Any ideas?
