Nike also took over the NBA’s G-League uniforms. They had to wait a little longer for their unveiling than the NBA had to. Unlike their parent club, the Blue’s uniform actually had real changes added.
New season, new look.

Here’s an image of last year’s uniforms:
The big different is the name on the front. While Continental Energy is still the main sponsor at the bottom of the jersey, it no longer says Oklahoma City. It now says “OKC Blue.”
Then, gone is the dark blue piping. Now it’s an orange accent down the sides. When you flip over the jersey, the backside has a lot of orange and YELLOW. It is really outside of what the Thunder’s boring uniform concepts have been in the past. I guess Nike was given a little creative freedom. I don’t hate it.
It’s assume the association version, aka the home jersey, will be very similar to this in some way. I imagine the yellow being churned out for some Thunder blue instead.
The Oklahoma City Blue’s season begins in Friday, Nov. 3 against Rio Grande Valley at the Cox Convention Center. The Blue travels to Wichita, Kansas to play at Intrust Bank Arena on Feb. 28. Then, on March 7, the annual game at the Peake at 11 a.m.
The Blue won the Western Conference’s regular season before falling to RGV in the Western Conference Finals. It’s only a coincidence the last two seasons the Blue have been eliminated by the same two clubs of the teams who eliminated the Thunder.We invite you to follow Thunder Digest on Twitter and like Thunder Digest on Facebook.
