Vintage vibes on the Cavs' 2018-19 "City Edition" uniform.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have today revealed their 2018-19 "City Edition" uniform, as well as a special edition court, that will debut on November 13 when the Cavs host the Charlotte Hornets at Quicken Loans Arena.
"The Land" City Edition uniforms feature an orange and blue wave design as a call back to the jerseys worn by the Cavaliers in 1994 during their first season in the new arena when they returned to downtown Cleveland.
According to the press release:
"The wave pattern splitting the orange and blue across the chest represents Lake Erie and the power and energy generated from this body of water that defines the shoreline of the City of Cleveland. A force of nature, The Great Lake Erie symbolizes the perseverance and fortitude of a community of people who stand strong together and proudly call themselves “Clevelanders.”"
"The jock tag on the lower left of the jersey reads “1 OUT OF 5 GREATS,” in reference that Lake Erie is one of the five Great Lakes."
The "City Edition" home court matches the new uniforms from the script wordmark to the split orange and blue wave design along the sidelines. The team will wear the alternate uniform during six home games this season.
