With nice uniforms come nice expectations for the Phoenix Suns, who’re bringing again the traditional “sunburst” look the workforce wore through the 1992-93 season.

  • This yr marks the thirtieth anniversary of its historic NBA title chase.

State of play: The workforce introduced the brand new uniforms Tuesday with a video of Deandre Ayton sporting the retro jersey, together with different throwbacks to the early ’90s, like old-school corded telephones, disposable point-and-click cameras and, better of all, the traditional arcade recreation NBA Jam.

  • Anybody nostalgic concerning the Suns workforce that misplaced to Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls will love the video’s footage of the 1992-93 workforce.

Particulars: The Suns will put on the brand new (by which we imply outdated) uniforms at the least 20 occasions this season, Graham Wincott, the workforce’s senior director of selling, instructed The Arizona Republic.

  • Any fan who needs the jersey might be able to purchase one as early as Oct. 1.

My thought bubble: The uniforms that the Suns wore within the 1992-93 are nonetheless my favourite, although I do actually just like the workforce’s “The Valley” jerseys.

  • I cherished the video, and hope it conjures up Ayton to unleash his interior Charles Barkley this season.
  • I nonetheless see John Paxson’s game-winning 3-pointer from 1993 in my nightmares, so here is hoping the 2022-23 season has a greater ending for the Suns.
