Each year Nike and the NBA use the canvas of a jersey to create art that embodies the basketball community of each city, intertwining its history and culture into the new City Edition team design.
This year, it all leads back to Boston. From the iconic players of the early days to the modern masters of the game, the Celtics' evolution spans eras, championships and generations of fans. Their 2023/24 City Edition Jersey celebrates the origins of the game and their continued commitment to the craft.
Artisan details are imprinted throughout this piece, with the taping nodding to local craftspeople and the connection between Beantown and basketball. The number style is a reference to the original 13 rules of the game, the ‘Makers Mark” pays homage to Springfield, MA and the man who founded the sport.
