From Vintage to New

A lot of things in the NBA have changed over time. The rules, teams, venues, even the jerseys and uniforms.

The uniforms specifically, is something cool to look at. From the NBA’s beginning it was short shorts and tight jerseys with simple and plain designs, with basic lettering and numbering. Converse running shoes and no accessories, pads, or sleeves. Today, it is sparkly jerseys, cool logos, and design. Vintage uniforms are cool, uniforms of today are fresh.

With every decade of the NBA, we take a look at how the NBA uniform has come to what we know it as today.
