When the Utah Jazz first wore their “mountain” jerseys in the 1996-1997 season, the team went all the way to the NBA Finals for the first time in franchise history only to lose to the Michael Jordan-led Chicago Bulls. They’d return to battle for the championship the next season in a rematch with Jordan’s squad. However, Utah got bested once more by the now immortalized “The Push”, er, I mean, “The Shot”.
Back to present-day: Feeling extremely confident with the turnout of the team’s pre-season roster overhaul, the Jazz top brass perhaps smell a return to the NBA’s biggest stage and decided to bring back the iconic jersey design for another ride. As a long-time Jazz Basketball fan, anything to spark the team is welcome. Can’t wait!
