The NBA officially unveiled the newest jersey variants for all 30 teams Monday morning. This iteration of uniforms is being called the 2021-22 City Edition Mixtape jersey. Each jersey is being designed with an homage to each team’s respective cities history or team name. Specifically for the Denver Nuggets, their jersey featured multiple callbacks to the Nuggets’ uniforms and logos from the past while looking towards the future.

Looking at this image of Monte Morris in the uniform, you can see various callbacks throughout the uniform. From the rainbow diamond pattern on each side of the jersey to represent the team’s original rainbow skyline pattern, to the ABA era Denver Rockets logo on the lower part of the left leg of the shorts. Everything about these uniforms is designed to honor the past and players that came before, especially considering this is the 75th season of the NBA.

The Nuggets plan to unveil their uniforms for the first time this season on Saturday November 6th when Denver returns home to face off with the Houston Rockets, and the jerseys will go on sale on Monday November 15th for those looking to get their own jersey to add to their collection. This jersey seems specifically designed to appeal to those that have been fans of the franchise for many years. With multiple callbacks to previous eras of Nuggets’ basketball, fans that have been around for a long time will likely quickly fall in love with these jerseys when the team is wearing them on the floor.
Will these uniforms be good enough to be remembered?
