It's been a busy week for news related to Warriors uniforms.
Golden State will wear an Oakland-themed jersey this season, according to Marcus Thompson of The Athletic.
The new uniforms are charcoal, gold and white — same color scheme as the popular slate uniforms the Warriors have worn on Saturday games the last few years. A small, cursive “The” sits above “TOWN” — which is in big, capital letters and bends along the circle in the abdomen of the jersey. Inside the circle is a take on the City of Oakland tree logo and the player's number.
So "The City" is out and "The Town" is in.
Rumors of this happening started to circulate this week, thanks to the video game "NBA 2K18."
Chip Bowers -- the Warriors' Chief Marketing Officer -- told The Athletic:
“It was important because it's part of our ongoing messaging that, yes, we may be moving to Chase Center in San Francisco, but we are not giving up on the equity and the people and the fan base that we have in the East Bay. This is one step in that process.
"There will be more things that we do down the road that will show that ongoing commitment. But we felt like the fandom and what people wear on their chest is really important and represents who they are and what they believe in.
"And we want people in the East Bay and Oakland to feel proud, and Warriors fans in general, about our time and our heritage in Oakland.”
On Tuesday, the Warriors announced a jersey sponsorship with Rakuten.
The public got a peek at the team's new Nike practice gear on Friday as well:
