Nike releases all new NBA 'statement edition' alternate jerseys at media event

All 30 NBA teams had a player representative in attendance for the Nike / NBA Partnership Launch at Sony Studios in Los Angeles to unveil the new "Statement Edition" jerseys.

The "Statement" jersey is inspired by each squad's decision to "make bold statements" with their designs. It's not yet clear how often teams will wear these new uniforms, but hopefully it's a lot because they sure are pretty sharp.

When Nike took over as the NBA's new jersey brand, they made some changes. Players will also reportedly have the ability to release messages only to those who have bought their jersey, rather than broadcasting something on social media.

In addition to the new uniforms, Nike and the National Basketball Association debuted the Nike Therma Flex Showtime Warm-up Jacket, the first on-court warm-up jacket with a performance hood. However, one of the more interesting announcement was Nike's new NBA Connected Jersey, which fans can buy.

Run through the gallery above to see players from every team showing off the new jerseys. To unlock it all, fans will download the NikeConnect app and tap the jersey with their smartphone. Throughout the season, a wealth of exclusive offers and experiences will bring fans closer to the game they love.

These black jerseys will be available for $110 as a replica Swingman jersey or $200 as an Authentic jersey.

This is one of the four different types of alternate uniforms teams will sport next season.
