In the announcement came some new, hi-res images of the Cavs City Edition's that have "The Land" across the chest. It's a far cry from the original uniforms, which consisted of the home, away, and alternate editions.

Nike and the Portland Trail Blazers unveiled the new (Rip) City edition uniform on Wednesday, the fourth and final new uniform for the 2017-18 season. The jersey features the four six-point stars that make up the flag, and it features the distinctive blue and red colors of the city's emblem.

When the stripe of the jersey meets the stipe on the shorts, "Always Lead" is printed directly above the jersey tag.

With two shades of purple to go with white lettering and numbering, the jerseys were inspired by the Phoenix constellation and the sun itself.

While every team in the league will have their own definitive City Editon uniform, there were a few that stood out from the pack. The Los Angeles Lakers uniform features a snake pattern as a nod to legend Kobe Bryant. In addition, for previous NBA Championship teams, Nike will include logos and patches that rep for the year each respective team won a title.

The "City Edition" uniforms display elements of racing that were intended when the team was first named the Pacers in 1967.
