For the last several seasons, fans in Phoenix have grown accustomed to the Suns wearing only three different uniforms, but that will change come next season. Uni-Watch.com reported last week that the Suns will be one of the many NBA teams that will wear a throwback uniform during the 2012-2013 season.
Here is a section from the article regarding which teams will be wearing different uniforms and what they will be wearing.
"I saw the Spring 2013 Adidas NBA Catalog and there are some new on-court offerings," says Chris Blackstone. "There are new jerseys for Christmas Day and for home weekend games during the second half of season, called the Winter Court jerseys. They're monochrome like the all- black Miami uniforms from the past couple years, but in team colors. Also, there are Hardwood Classic jerseys for Indiana (home from 1997-98 through 2004-05), Milwaukee (late '90s), Chicago (mid-'90s alternate), Atlanta (late-'90s road), Miami (late-'90s alternate), Sacramento (mid-'90s alternate), Phoenix (1990s alternate), Philly (early-'90s road), Cleveland (mid-'90s road), Toronto (late-'90ss home), Houston (late-'90s road), and Utah (late-'90s road)."
First off, this is long overdue in my opinion. I remember several years back when the Suns wore their home uniforms from the 1980s, but they haven't worn any throwbacks since then for whatever reason. It is always exciting whenever your team is wearing a different uni.
I know that several people made jokes of these uniforms back in the day, but I always liked them. I thought they were unique and relative to what the 90's were all about. Somewhere in my room I still have my Kevin Johnson black uniform that I had when I was little.
When and how often they are going to wear remains in question, but it is going to be exciting when the Suns do.
