It's still unknown when the coming NBA campaign is going to start, but yet another organization has already released its uniform ahead of the 2020/21 season.
The Portland Trail-Blazers unveiled their Nike City Edition design, which pays homage to the team’s home state of Oregon. According to the team, “the uniform celebrates the unique beauty of Oregon’s landscape as well as acknowledging and honoring the tribal nations throughout what is now considered Oregon who have called this land their home from the beginning.”
