Nike and the NBA officially unveiled the fourth and final set of jerseys for each team today, with these jerseys supposed to represent the city each team plays in. We got a sneak preview of Sacramento’s jerseys thanks to a leak from NBA 2K, and while those jerseys weren’t 100% accurate (the logo and numbers were too big) the real versions are very similar.

With these jerseys, the Kings are paying tribute to the baby blue uniform that started it all in Sacramento 32 years ago, but with a modern spin on it.

“Thirty-two years ago, the Kings transformed Sacramento and created a community of basketball fans that are unmatched around the NBA,” said Sacramento Kings President of Business Operations John Rinehart. “The City Uniforms look back at the team that forever changed Sacramento, with new emblems for the next generation of fan and the future of our team.”

These new jerseys will pair with a new alternate court which the Kings revealed on Christmas day, making the Kings the only team in the NBA with two alternate courts. These jerseys and court will be used for eight home games over the remainder of the season. In case you’re wondering, what the rest of the NBA’s city jerseys look like, Nike has posted them all on their website.
