The trend, once again, is in for the NBA 2023-24 Classic Edition jerseys, as the game is embracing the idea that old is new. Therefore throwback jerseys will be prominent once again this upcoming season.

As of now, four teams have plans to wear throwback jerseys for at least eight games in the upcoming campaign. Those teams are the Charlotte Hornets, Utah Jazz, Orlando Magic, and Minnesota Timberwolves.

After eleven teams went into their old closet last year, there are still a few who want to keep the trend alive.

NBA 2023-24 Throwback Jersey Lineup

Team 1: Charlotte Hornets

In a press release by the Hornets, their throwback will bring back memories of one of the more successful eras of the team.

The classic jerseys go back to the 1997-2002 era. These fits include a white Charlotte wordmark along the chest in old-school font, multi-color double pinstripes, and the Jordan logo along with the rest of the team’s uniforms.

As of now, the team is scheduled to wear these jerseys for at least eight home games in 2023-24.

Team 2: Orlando Magic

Like their Southeast Division counterparts, the Orlando Magic are bringing back jerseys from the late 1990s and early 2000s.

The Magic’s classic fits feature the star A wordmark from 1998-2003 with a star backdrop on a blue background. The uniform also features the current Disney sponsorship patch.

The team will feature this uniform for ten home games this season, beginning on opening night, Wednesday, October 25.

Team 3: Minnesota Timberwolves

The third team to announce a throwback jersey is the Minnesota Timberwolves. For the Wolves, they are going to their first seven seasons. The uniforms feature the colors of their first logo, known affectionately as “Old Shep”. The Wolves wordmark features the theme of the team from 1989-1996.

There is also the old 90s Nike logo on the right shoulder patch. The team will feature this uniform 21 total times this season, 11 at home and 10 on the road.

Team 4: Utah Jazz

The final team, as of now that has a jersey for the NBA 2023-24 throwback program is the Utah Jazz. As they prepare to embark on their 50th anniversary season, the Jazz’s throwback jersey will be their first road jersey when the team played back in New Orleans in 1974. As an homage to Pete Maravich, the jersey is purple with green and gold accents throughout the fit. The team will feature this kit at least eight times over the season.

Final Thoughts

Overall, the 2023-24 NBA throwback jersey lineup looks to be as intriguing as years past. While there are teams that remain to be seen, the first four presentations are very likable. When the jerseys hit the court for the first time, there should be plenty of hype to surround them.
