The Hornets Unveiled Their First Two Official Jordan Brand Uniforms


After Nike took over the uniform production for the NBA this season, it opened the door for the Hornets to do something unique with their majority owner Michael Jordan. With Jordan Brand being a Nike property, the Hornets were allowed to swap out the Nike Swoosh that will adorn the other 29 teams’ uniforms around the NBA for the Jumpman logo.

Charlotte will be the only team with the Jordan Brand logo on their uniforms, which is a special nod to their owner and the greatest NBA player of all-time. On Monday, the Hornets made the official unveiling of the first two uniforms with the Jumpman logo on them, the Association and Icon editions — formerly known as the Home and Road uniforms.

There isn’t a significant change to the uniform look aside from the Jordan logo on the right chest, as the teal and white uniforms don’t stray far from their previous designs.

The only significant changes are the Jordan logo, the secondary logo on the side of the shorts, thinner stripes on the sides of the uniforms from the previous iterations, and the teal Icon Edition uniforms now say Hornets rather than Charlotte across the front.

The biggest changes are likely to come in the form of the two alternate uniforms that are still yet to be revealed, as teams will have a bit more freedom with uniform selection this season. Previous alternates for Charlotte included a purple and black sleeved “Buzz City” design, but we won’t know what changes or new alternates will join the rotation until later in the year.
