The NBA and Nike released special ‘Earned’ uniforms on Friday for each team that made the playoffs last season, including the Wizards.
Washington's Earned Edition uniform features the team’s classic red as a base and brings back the marble-inspired side paneling that references the Washington Monument.#DCFamily pic.twitter.com/qEvWomiTXB— NBA UK (@NBAUK) December 12, 2018
Like all the other uniforms in this collection, the Wizards’ uniform follows the pattern of one of their pre-existing uniforms and switches up the color scheme. Now, the Wizards have a red version of their District uniform, to go along with the white version they wore this season and the black version they’re wearing this season.
The Wizards will wear these jerseys six times this season, according to their jersey schedule.
- December 29 vs. the Charlotte Hornets
- January 25 at the Orlando Magic
- January 27 at the San Antonio Spurs
- January 29 at the Cleveland Cavaliers
- January 30 vs. the Indiana Pacers
- February 22 at the Charlotte Hornets
It would have been nice to see another original design, but every other team getting these uniforms can make that gripe. Until the NBA finally lets the Wizards do a throwback of their 90’s uniforms, this is probably the closest we’ll get to seeing those Kool-Aid red uniforms Chris Webber and Juwan Howard wore back in the day so we’ll take it for now.
