Nike releases all new National Basketball Association 'statement edition' alternate jerseys at media event

A few teams' jerseys had already leaked out early because of the new National Basketball Association 2K game, but now with these officially out the National Basketball Association can begin a new Nike themed era.

"The color black is a nod to the historic turning point in the 2016 NBA Finals when the Cavs wore their black-sleeved uniforms in Games 5 and 7 of the NBA Finals on their way to winning their first NBA Championship and Cleveland's first major sports title in 52 years. From modernizing the look of the game to revolutionizing how fans can be a part of it, we can't wait for the season to start".

One of the world's biggest athletic apparel companies will soon have a plethora of data about customers who bought their NBA jerseys at their disposal thanks to Nike NBA smart jerseys. They'll debut the new NikeConnect system, which relies on a mobile app of the same name that reacts to NFC tags embedded in the jerseys.

But these are more than just a jersey, they can bring you highlights of your favorite player, too.

Run through the gallery above to see players from every team showing off the new jerseys. The $110 "Swingman" replica uniforms and the $200 authentic jerseys will both work with the NikeConnect app when they are both launched on September 29th.

All Statement Edition jerseys drop November 20, and will begin being worn on-court on November 25.
