A center doing a Superman impression..that’s new!
The Phoenix Suns have had iconic uniforms in the past. Specifically during the Barkley era.
Apart from the timeless Bulls design and the Charlotte/Orlando pinstripes, the Suns were the most recognizable jerseys in the 90s.
Of course, team success and superstar presence had a part with that, so don’t expect much from these Suns jerseys–at least this season. If they get Wiggins, next year, that’s another story.
The Phoenix Suns will add some style to an action-packed summer when they unveil their new uniforms during a runway show at Scottsdale Fashion Squareon Thursday, Aug. 15. The public reveal will take place at 7 pm inside Fashion Square on the east end of the first level, just outside of Barneys.
Suns players Eric Bledsoe, Alex Len, Archie Goodwin and P.J. Tucker will reveal the new look, with Suns Ring-of-Honor members Alvan Adams, Tom Chambers, Walter Davis and Dick Van Arsdale, as well as alumni Eddie Johnson, Steven Hunter and Tim Kempton all scheduled to participate. Legendary radio play-by-play broadcaster Al McCoy, as well as Suns President Jason Rowley, will also play a role in the highly anticipated event.
The Suns have given fans a glimpse of the #NewLookSuns in recent weeks through a number of sneak peeks on the team’s social media channels (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Tumblr).
The new uniforms will be available for pre-order immediately following the reveal. Fans will also have the opportunity to purchase team merchandise featuring the new Suns logos that were introduced in June.
The new uniforms represent yet another exciting change for the Suns in a summer that has already included the hiring of General Manager Ryan McDonough in May, as well as former fan-favorite Jeff Hornacek as the team’s head coach shortly thereafter. The team drafted Len (5th overall) and Goodwin (29th overall) in June’s NBA Draft, and acquired the highly sought-after Bledsoe and veteran forward Caron Butler from the Los Angeles Clippers on July 10.
Last Saturday, the Suns added to a busy offseason by acquiring second-year center Miles Plumlee and athletic swingman Gerald Green, as well as a lottery protected first-round draft pick, from Indiana. The Suns now have the potential for three first-round picks in the 2014 NBA Draft and five total over the course of the next two drafts combined.
The new look will mark only the fourth time in franchise history that the Suns have undergone a major redesign of their uniforms
