Courtesy of a Tyler Ulis Instagram story, we were treated to a sneak peek of the new, old Nike classic jersey that the Phoenix Suns will wear for the 2017-18 season. Or perhaps, it’s an elaborate ruse perpetrated by Ulis. Buckle in, I’m posting anyway.
Best Nike classic jersey in the entire NBA, I say. This is Nike’s first season outfitting the league. Twenty-two teams are receiving four uniforms to wear throughout the season. Phoenix is among the lucky eight that will don a fifth “classic” jersey. The Atlanta Hawks, Charlotte Hornets, Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Lakers, Miami Heat, and Milwaukee Bucks are the other teams getting a throwback.
Whether or not the shorts pictured will be the same length as similar shorts the Suns wore many years ago has not be revealed.
