The Golden State Warriors are ready to compete again for a NBA title, and with Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson fully-recovered, that does not seem like an impossible task.
In the meantime we'll have to wait for their first performance back, but the team has already unveiled the team’s City Edition Nike jerseys, made to celebrate the team’s 47 seasons in Oakland by focusing on the “We Believe” playoff run in 2007.

“Oakland Forever," presented by @Rakuten, is a nod to the We Believe era and its turning point in Oakland’s basketball history.

The team will also partner with jersey-sponsor Rakuten to unveil a new outdoor basketball court in Oakland, along with other community initiatives.
Golden State becomes the latest NBA team to reveal their new threads for next season. During this offseason, organizations like Atlanta, Toronto, Charlotte, Brooklyn and Portland were the first ones to present their new uniforms.
“Inspired by the uniforms worn by the team from 1997-2010, the new City Edition jerseys feature Oakland across the front of the uniform, where the team played its home games from 1972-1996 and 1997-2019,” the Warriors explained in their announcement. “The era included the celebrated We Believe playoff run in 2007, when the Warriors became the first eight-seed to defeat a one-seed in a best-of-seven playoff series with a 4-2 upset over the Dallas Mavericks.”
