More to Come - Cavaliers altering uniforms for next season

New, comments

There is no doubt.  The Cavaliers have more uniforms in the rotation than any team in professional sports.  The wine road unis, the white home unis, the  navy alternate version, the version that honors the Price/Daugherty/Nance Cavaliers and of course the traditional Wine and Gold colors, on the 80's design, paying homage to the CavFanatics.

If that weren't enough, the Cavaliers are about to add a few more to the list.

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.

I, for one, am eager to see what the Cavaliers come up with.  I think the current version's are the best in the NBA and would be hard-pressed to be improved upon.
