Cavs debut ‘Classic’ edition jersey, court for 2019-20 season

The Cavs are going back to the 90s.

The Cavaliers are going back to the 1990s with their new jersey and court.

As announced by the team on Tuesday, the Cavs’ ‘Classic’ jerseys for the 2019-20 season are the team’s uniforms from when the team moved into the building formally known as Gund Arena for the 1993-1994 season. Per the announcement, the jersey is a one-year addition to the team’s jersey rotation. One other jersey — dubbed the ‘City’ colorway — will be released at a later date.

Cleveland will wear the ‘Classic’ jersey for the first time in its home opener on Oct. 26 against the Pacers. Overall, the Cavs will wear the jerseys a total of eight times in the 2019-20 season.

Additionally, Cleveland will use a court featuring the same color scheme the nights they wear the ‘Classic’ uniform. The design includes the Cavs’ logo from 1994-2003, as does the jersey.

Are these the best Cavs jerseys ever? No, but it’s a fun nostalgia play to a sometimes forgotten era of Cavs basketball. And something a little off kilter as far as jerseys go is fun — not everything needs to look exactly the same.

Cleveland also a released a look at its 50th anniversary season.
