The Charlotte Hornets announced on social media Monday that they will return to their double pinstriped NBA jerseys for the upcoming season. Hornets fans will instantly recognize the beloved Hornets jerseys because they resemble the Hornets’ uniforms from the team’s inception. Players like Magsy Boggs, Larry Johnson and Alonzo Mourning wowed NBA fans in famous games.
Charlotte’s new uniforms feature a beautiful blue and green color scheme with pinstripes on the front. Purple highlights the letters and numbers. The Michael Jordan (Michael Jordan) Flyers (Jumpman) logo is prominently placed on the right shoulder, while the team’s sponsor, Lending Tree, is on the left. The shorts have a double stripe running down one side that expands into a cell Hornets logo near the bottom. They are not a direct replica of Alexander Julien’s iconic design, but they are close.
They made a video telling the story of their famous striped team:According to ESPN, this is the first complete redesign of the team’s uniforms since the Charlotte Bobcats changed their name in 2014. The team is expected to keep the purple statement version of the jersey for the 2019-20 season, but a new city version is reportedly in the works. The Hornets finished the 2019-20 season with a 23-42 record, which left the team in 10th place in the Eastern Conference and without a playoff berth. Let’s see if these new clues will inspire them next season.
