New Year, New Gear: Check Out the NBA's 75th Anniversary Snapbacks
The NBA’s 75th season is officially underway. If the first four weeks of basketball action are any indication, we’re in for an exciting year of hoops with all 32 teams battling tooth and nail to bring home the Larry O’Brien trophy to their city. Even this early, we’ve already seen pretty much everything from buzzer-beaters, broken records, and nail-biting furious finishes that give us no definitive favorites just yet. Will the Bucks successfully defend last year’s title and go back-to-back, or will a new team be crowned as 2021-22 champions?
Local NBA fans can root for their favorite teams as well as celebrate the NBA’s diamond year with the much-awaited release of New Era’s Tip Off Collection. The classic, no-fuss 9FIFTY snapback is decked out in your favorite ball club’s colors with the cap’s front panels featuring an eye-catching embroidered custom design highlighted by each team’s logos and wordmarks that give off a ‘90s throwback vibe.
To further toast the past, the official NBA 75th anniversary commemorative logo can also be found on the right side of the crown to celebrate this milestone in the league’s colorful continuing history. The brand’s signature flag logo is seen as usual on the crown’s left exterior and a tiny tab with the team’s icon brands the snapback’s closure. A gray undervisor completes the cap’s refreshing, clean look that goes perfect with the start of a brand-new campaign where really, anybody can win it all this year.
We’re giving you a first look at some of the caps from the collection that are now available locally. After an early exit in last season’s playoffs, the revamped Los Angeles Lakers boast a fully loaded lineup of future Hall-of-Famers and vets. Their cap comes in a purple colorway, while last year’s bridesmaids, the Phoenix Suns, get one in their own shade.
Probably this year’s most exciting team, the new and improved Chicago Bulls opt for their classic red, while the resurgent Miami Heat does away with the neon Miami Vice color palette we’ve been seeing them don quite a bit in recent years and go with their traditional black instead. Crosstown rivals the Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks each get theirs in black and blue respectively.
