A Breakdown Of The New Nike NBA Authentic And Swingman Jerseys

Featured Nike NBA Jerseys

It’s been over two years since Nike’s team apparel partnership with professional basketball was announced. Since that day, fans and players have been patiently waiting to see the newly designed jerseys, on-court hoodies, shirts, socks, and more.

That day is finally here! The Nike NBA Swingman Jersey and the Nike NBA Authentic Jersey are now available on eastbay.com, along with the rest of the team apparel! Not only do we carry all 30 teams, but we also have a number of different players and color combinations. These jerseys are also the first to feature Nike’s revolutionary NikeConnect technology which is built to change the way you experience the game of basketball.

 

NikeConnect Feature

NikeConnect is a personalized experience that is activated through the combination of your jersey, smartphone, and the NikeConnect app. This experience gives fans access to customized content with a simple scan of the NikeConnect Logo on the Swingman or Authentic  jersey tag.

To begin, you simply need to tap the Nike Connect logo on the tag at the bottom of your machine washable jersey with your smartphone. This launches the experience and prompts you to create or sign in to a NikePlus account.

After signing in, a page appears with your athlete jersey — you are now connected. You can tap in any time to receive updated team and player content such as pregame arrival footage, highlight packages, soundtracks, and more. If you tap in on game day, you will also get additional access to exclusive offers.

So now that you know about the special tech packed into each jersey, let’s take a look at the different styles you can choose from.

Available Jersey Color Styles

Association Edition

This jersey pays its respects to the league as whole. Every year around 400 players have the opportunity to put on an NBA uniform. Every team in the league has a white jersey, and this specific white color represents the solidarity of the league with Nike.

Icon Edition

The Icon Edition shows its love for each individual team in the league. Every team has its own identity, one that makes them different from the other 29. This jersey represents the iconic nature of each franchise, and is the team’s main color.

Finally, let’s breakdown the Nike NBA Swingman and Nike NBA Authentic Jerseys, so that you can find the perfect fit.

Technical Specs

Nike Autherntic NBA Jersey

Nike NBA Authentic Jersey – $199.99

  • Lightweight mesh throughout the back of the jersey reduces cling and increases breathability.
  • Texturized yarn on the front of the jersey wicks away moisture, dries quickly, and doesn’t cling.
  • Scapula-shaped armholes and mobile shoulder seams for a full range of motion.
  • No distracting seams or hems to restrict your body movement.
  • Made from about 20 plastic bottles, each jersey is created with 100% recycled fabric.

Nike NBA Swingman Jersey – $109.99

Nike Swingman NBA Jersey

The Swingman Jersey is inspired by the on-court jerseys your favorite players will be wearing on the hardwood this season. This more casual option offers most of the fabric features the Authentic Jersey does, but gives you a slightly different look and feel. The fabric and mesh are different and not as lightweight and slim throughout the body, but still offer a perfect comfortable option for wearing around town or to the arena.


The future is here, basketball fans. Jerseys and Nike technology have combined and created a new, exciting path for jersey technology. Get your Nike NBA gear now at eastbay.com!
