Pistons make 'Statement' with new third uniform

Pistons make 'Statement' with new third uniform

- The Minnesota Timberwolves teamed up with Nike to create new Statement Edition uniforms, the two announced Friday. It's not yet clear how often teams will wear these new uniforms, but hopefully it's a lot because they sure are pretty sharp.

The "Statement" jersey is inspired by each squad's decision to "make bold statements" with their designs. However, they're of course all Nike branded now, and some include subtle changes beyond that.

With one more jersey yet to be revealed, Nike and the Heat could be waiting till the very last moment to surprise fans with something truly new.

In addition to the jerseys, the players also debuted a new hoody warmup jacket as well.

The new uniform resembles the Heat's classic red alternates and look as crisp as ever. However, one of the more interesting announcement was Nike's new NBA Connected Jersey, which fans can buy.

While connecting fans to real-time data about their favorite players is a great way for Nike to deliver content to customers, the real value for Nike in this program is an expansion of their business analytics.

The company has truly pushed the envelope by syncing the jerseys to an app called NikeConnect. Additionally, other exclusive offers and experiences will be unveiled throughout the season. The $110 "Swingman" replica uniforms and the $200 authentic jerseys will both work with the NikeConnect app when they are both launched on September 29th. The latter conceit also follows in Milwaukee's Statement Edition uniform, where the team's powerful new Buck logo is front and center.
