Twelve teams are getting throwbacks next year. From TBJ's Trey Kerby himself:
The throwbacks, on the other hand, all sound great. I’m assuming the teams will be wearing these: Pacers, Bucks, Bulls, Hawks, Heat, Kings, Suns, Sixers, Cavaliers, Raptors, Rockets, Jazz. But even if I’m not entirely accurate on my guesses, the teams are definitely going to be wearing throwbacks from the 1990′s, which is awesome. Usually teams look a little further back, towards the 70′s or 80′s, so it’s going to be fun seeing teams looking like the era when a lot of us came of age as NBA fans.
Of the 12 that have been announced thus far, I’d say I’m most excited to see the Jazz and Hawks retros. Sure, they’re both entirely ridiculous and hopelessly 90′s, but it’s been a while since we saw jerseys with giant cartoons wrapped around the midsections and it’s going to be hilarious to see a guy like Al Jefferson with some mountains around his belly.

You can (and SHOULD) check out the full post at The Basketball Jones' blog at thescore.ca. There is a glorious picture of Greg Ostertag there. I can't wait to see our team PLAY like a throwback 90s Jazz team though, instead of just look like one with their jerseys.
