NBA uniforms will look a little bit different this season.

With Nike taking over as the official jersey supplier, that’s no surprise. The NBA previously announced that some teams will have a small sponsor logo crest as well – a first in the four major professional sports leagues in North America.

Nike will also debut alternate ‘statement’ jerseys this season. Some teams have gone with drastically new looks, while others have kept the status quo.

Twitter user @JMoneyMikita uncovered the new uniforms that were leaked through a copy of NBA 2K18 bought in Australia according to Conrad Burry of SportsLogos.net.

The Minnesota Timberwolves are among the teams that went with a fresh new look – going with a lime green alternate. The leaked jersey of the Toronto Raptors is pretty boring, as it’s the same alternate jersey they’ve used in the past.

That’s no fun, but their fourth jersey sounds like it may be pretty intriguing.

Burry belives that the Raptors will display the word ‘North’ on a new alternate jersey. It’s a nod to the team’s insanely popular ‘We the North’ campaign, and could be a fun look.

We’re not sure what they’ll look like yet, although here are a couple of concept designs:

Here’s a look at the rest of the league’s ‘statement’ jerseys:
