CLEVELAND -- Last month, a detailed mockup of the Cleveland Cavaliers' fourth and final new Nike jersey for the 2017-18 appeared online.
And while the Cavs have yet to officially unveil or confirm their new threads, which will come as a part of Nike's 'City Edition' collection, we now have a closer look at what they will look like.
On Monday, Conrad Burry, who created the initial mockup of the upcoming Cavs alternate, posted a picture of a t-shirt version of the jersey being sold in stores. The shirt largely matches Burry's initial design, which featured 'The Land' in gold font across a gray jersey. In the t-shirt version, however, the wordmark and numbers are white, with a black and gold outline.
On Tuesday, the Cavs released their full uniform schedule for the remainder of the 2017-18 season -- from which their unreleased gray jerseys noticeably absent. But as pointed out by one Twitter user, the team is slated to wear its white "association" jerseys nearly twice as much as its black "statement" and wine "icon" uniforms, which could be a sign that the "city" editions could split time with the similarly lighter jerseys once announced.
Also revealed on Tuesday was a gray version of LeBron James' signature Nike shoe, titled the "City Edition." That would seemingly confirm that gray could be here to stay in the Cavs' newest colorway.
