The special uniforms will be red, white and blue, complete with a white and grey camouflage pattern. The Coast Guard’s “Semper Paratus” motto, which translates to “Always Ready,” is featured on the back of each jersey.

Last but not least, the Cardinals will be wearing customized D Rose 773 III and D Rose Englewood III shoes for the game.

Cleveland Cavaliers Unveil New Navy Alternate Uniforms for 2014-15 Season

From the first game of the Cleveland Cavaliers’ 2014-15 season, fans will know that a new era has begun.

When LeBron James and Kevin Love step onto the court as Cavaliers on Oct. 30, they won’t be rocking wine and gold uniforms. Instead, the stars—along with the rest of the team—will be wearing Cleveland’s new navy uniforms.

Fans may notice that there is something at the bottom of the front of the jersey. As a way to inspire the players, “All For One. One For All.” is written in a box at the bottom of the jersey. It is written upside down so that the players are able to read the message.

Cavaliers chief marketing officer Tracy Marek explained to NBA.com why the team added a new alternate uniform for the upcoming season:

With so much excitement and positive momentum going into this season, this special time called for a brand new uniform to match the energy and mojo of the 2014-15 team. Our special thanks to the NBA and adidas for working with us to ensure these unique navy uniforms will be ready for opening night.

The navy uniform probably isn’t much of a surprise, considering Cleveland’s new court has a navy border.

The Cavaliers will use this navy uniform, along with existing gold uniforms, as an alternate look throughout the season.

Some Cavaliers fans had wondered if the team would get a makeover once James joined the team. It may not be a total makeover, but this new alternate uniform certainly signals a new era.

New Orleans Pelicans Unveil New Red Alternate Uniforms for 2014-15 Season

A season after changing their nickname as part of a huge makeover, the New Orleans Pelicans have added a new red alternate uniform to wear during the 2014-15 season.

According to ESPN.com’s Paul Lukas, NBA teams aren’t allowed to have alternate uniforms in their first year of existence. That means that when New Orleans changed their nickname from the “Hornets” to the “Pelicans,” the team had to go with just home and road uniforms—no alternates. 

The team unveiled the new look on Tuesday.

In order to properly show off the new uniforms, some of the players served as models for the unveiling.

The Pelicans will wear the alternate jerseys for four home games this upcoming season, including their season opener against the Orlando Magic on Oct. 28. The other three dates are listed in the team’s official press release.

New Orleans’ new red duds will be the only ones to have “Pelicans” written across the front.

Ranking the Top 5 Uniforms in Los Angeles Clippers History

The Los Angeles Clippers franchise doesn’t have a history of winning in bunches, but in terms of uniforms, their tradition is as rich as it gets.

The Clips have won many times in the looks department, and part of the intrigue in their success lies in the fact that they’ve had two substantial relocations to San Diego from Buffalo in 1978 and from San Diego to Los Angeles in 1984. 

As for the criteria, the goal is to look at the five best looking outfits. One thing to note is that these have nothing to do with the success of the team that wore them, though there’s plenty of background info for context alone.

Which jerseys belong in the all-time top 5 in franchise history? Let’s take a look, starting where it all began.

Arizona Wildcats Reveal Sharp New Basketball Uniforms

The Arizona Wildcats are going to have quite a few new uniforms to choose from when they take the court this upcoming season.

Nike has hooked the Wildcats up with five new sets of uniforms.

The two white uniforms will be used at home, and the blue uniform and the red uniform will be worn on the road. The gray uniform will reportedly be used for both home and away games.

More pictures can be seen on the official Twitter account of Arizona basketball.

The “new” look may look a bit familiar to Wildcats fans. The design honors one of the best eras of Arizona basketball, via ArizonaWildcats.com:

The side paneling and trim of the new uniforms pay tribute to the uniforms the Wildcats wore for roughly a decade beginning in the mid-1990’s, a period that cemented Arizona’s place among the nation’s elite college basketball programs.

During that era, Arizona won a national championship (1997) and was the national runner-up (2001) once.

The new uniforms will also reportedly have a cactus-based aerographic that will cover the entire back. However, the back of the uniforms have yet to be revealed.

It’s a familiar look for the Wildcats, but it is a bit more modern.
