The Oklahoma City Thunder had a clever little tease on Twitter yesterday — referencing an upcoming announcement from the organization:
The Thunder confirmed Tuesday morning that the ‘Sunset’ alternate jerseys are indeed returning this season.
The announcement confirms the rumors and designs we started seeing about a week ago when the jerseys (accidentally?) ended up in a Midwest City store.
The Sunset jersey holds a special spot in Thunder fans hearts. The uniform made its debut during the 2015-16 season — the one that featured a deep playoff run that ultimately ended in game seven of the Western Conference FInals. Furthermore, the team was even wearing the Sunsets the night Russell Westbrook clinched the season-average of a triple-double (and sunk the Nuggets at the buzzer).
The new digs will make their on-court debut December 30 in Dallas against the Mavericks. They’ll also appear on January 6 vs Washington, January 19 vs Philadelphia, January 21 vs New York, February 26 vs Denver, March 3 vs Memphis, March 31 vs Dallas, and April 7 vs Minnesota. According to the Thunder, the jerseys will go on sale for a limited time starting December 19.
Here’s a quick look at the pictures released by the Thunder on Instagram:
