Golden State Warriors unveil new uniforms for 2019-20 season

It is a season of transition for the Golden State Warriors. 

Gone are Andre Iguodala, Shaun Livingston and, most prominently, Kevin Durant. In is All-Star D’Angelo Russell. Longtime stalwart Klay Thompson is recovering from a knee injury suffered during the NBA Finals that should sideline him until the new year. 

And in the biggest change of all, the Warriors have left Oracle Arena, their Oakland home for 47 seasons, for the state-of-the-art Chase Center in San Francisco. 

To accompany the move, the Warriors have unveiled a series of new uniform combinations (well, sort of) that they will wear throughout the 2019-20 season. 

The home and road threads remain virtually the same, but a series of throwback jerseys will be seen throughout the season. 

Perhaps most iconic is “The City” jerseys. First worn in the 1960s, these uniforms debuted when the team still called San Francisco home. Golden State — which was known as the San Francisco Warriors from 1962-1971 — has worn these plenty before, but now that the team is back in the city proper, here’s hoping these are in heavy rotation. 

A throwback we haven’t seen much of that the Warriors will be wearing is their original West Coast look from the days of Wilt Chamberlain: 

A new jersey unveiled Tuesday was a redesign of “The Bay” jerseys. 

The team will also still be wearing “The Town” jerseys, despite no longer playing in The Town (Oakland). 

We’re sure Steph Curry’s No. 30 will be on the back of plenty of these new unis.
