Cavaliers Fans Outraged Over New Uniforms

The Cleveland Cavaliers unveiled an updated version of their black Statement Edition jerseys this week. Fans did not respond warmly to the new modifications.

Michael Jordan was a consistent pest for the Cavaliers back in the late 1980s, and now fans will have a permanent reminder of it with his logo stitched firmly on the team uniforms.

Fans immediately took to social media to express their disdain for the design.

Obviously the anger is justifiable and understandable, but Cavaliers fans have to realize that their team had no choice. Every squad in the league will have the Jumpman on their Statement Edition jerseys next season.

Cleveland first wore Statement Edition uniforms back in 2017, but their all-black look was made famous one year earlier when LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and the Cavs squared off against the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals.

Will Cavaliers brass ultimately address their fans and explain to them why these jerseys look the way they look? Time will tell.

  1. I’m actually okay with it. All nba teams statement edition jerseys are going to be Jordan this year. So every team in the league is going to have a Jordan jersey. But it is a little bit disrespectful for the cavs to put it all over their social media’s when not many other teams did.
