ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — We’ve seen many NBA teams celebrate their heritage by wearing throwback uniforms, which is always a fun way to bring back classic styles. But for their game tonight against the Toronto Raptors on NBA TV (10:30 p.m. ET), as part of their Hardwood Classics series, the Warriors are not only wearing throwback uniforms, they’re also playing on a throwback court.
The jersey is above. Here’s a look at the court.
According to the Warriors, this is a nod to the 1966-67 season…
Originally released during the 1966-67 NBA season, the Warriors’ “The City” jerseys will be worn for a total of eight games this season, with the team’s original center court logo returning to Oracle Arena during all five home games the team will host a Hardwood Classics Night.
Below are additional Hardwood Classics Nights the Warriors will wear “The City” jerseys this season:
