The post LeBron James era has not been too pleasant for the City of Cleveland.
After having a 1-7 start, the 2015-16 NBA coach who led Cleveland to an NBA championship was fired. In addition, one of there core veterans in “J.R. Smith”, is unhappy with his rotation of minutes with the younger players. It seems like everything that could go wrong has since the start of the season about three weeks ago.
Earlier today Cleveland fans could maybe smile just a little with the unveiling of there new “City Edition” jersey along with a special edition court. Cleveland will debut their special edition uniform on November 13th against the Charlotte Hornets at Quicken Loans Arena.
Some of the details for “The Land” City editions included an orange and blue wave design replicating the jerseys the Cavs worn back in there first season in the new arena.
According to the press release:
“The wave pattern splitting the orange and blue across the chest represents Lake Erie and the power and energy generated from this body of water that defines the shoreline of the City of Cleveland. A force of nature, The Great Lake Erie symbolizes the perseverance and fortitude of a community of people who stand strong together and proudly call themselves “Clevelanders.””
“The jock tag on the lower left of the jersey reads “1 OUT OF 5 GREATS,” in reference that Lake Erie is one of the five Great Lakes.”
The “City Edition” home court matches the new uniforms from the script wordmark to the split orange and blue wave design along the sidelines. The team will wear the alternate uniform during six home games this season.
