The NBA and Nike agreed on an eight-year partnership that will change the league's uniforms for the 2017-18 season. Popular video game NBA 2K18 features one set of alternate jerseys for each team.

Update: @JMoneyMikita also provided looks at the Statement jerseys for the Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics:
