On Wednesday, the NBA unveiled the 2020-21 Nike Earned Edition uniform collection, available exclusively to the 16 teams who earned a spot in the playoffs last season.
The Earned Edition uniforms celebrate the 16 franchises, with team names or logos emblazoned on the front of the uniforms and featuring current team design elements. The designs across each uniform amplify the iconic elements that are ingrained in each organization.

As an added nod to the playoff teams, 15 of the uniforms are adorned with special silver insignias including a silver Nike swoosh on the top left front of the uniforms; a silver Earned Edition jocktag on the bottom right front; and a silver NBA logo on the back, above the player’s name.
Each pair of shorts additionally features a silver Nike swoosh and silver Nike logo as well.
The Earned Edition uniform for the 2020 NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers stands alone with these marks decorated in gold to honor the NBA championship the team earned.
