Nike Unveils NBA Statement Uniforms

CLEVELAND- Nike introduced its "Statement Edition" uniforms for the NBA's 30 teams Friday night.

Unveiled during a private launch event at Sony Studios in Los Angeles, we got a first look at what they call the Nike NBA Connected Jersey: the first NBA jersey that gives the wearer an all-access pass into their favorite team and players. The Pistons will wear the new Statement jerseys in five homes games this season: December 30 (Spurs), Jan. 6 (Rockets), Jan. 27 (Thunder), Feb. 9 (Clippers) and March 26 (Lakers). They'll debut the new NikeConnect system, which relies on a mobile app of the same name that reacts to NFC tags embedded in the jerseys.

With one more jersey yet to be revealed, Nike and the Heat could be waiting till the very last moment to surprise fans with something truly new.

National Basketball Association fans will be able to represent their favorite teams with the new uniforms when they become available on November 20 on Nike's website. The hook is the ability to unlock "premium content" like "pregame arrival footage, highlight packages and top players' favorite music playlists".

The Cavs will wear debut these jerseys on the court at Quicken Loans Arena when they play the Charlotte Hornets on November 24.

The jerseys will be available online globally on September 29.
