Last year the Cavs wore special "CavFanatic" jerseys for select games during the season. These were basically mashups of previous uni combos that formed the bright blue, gold (yellow?), and wine final product.
Well, they're doing it again this season, according to uniform maven Paul Lukas, who posted this photo on Uni Watch this morning. Late 80's design in 70's colors. I dig it a lot more than the blue versions they wore last year not just because of the colors, but also because the basket in the "V" is one of my favorite designs of all time. What's strange, at least in this picture, is the lack of the anniversary "XL" patch, but that will probably be rectified when it comes time to wear these pretty things on the court. Last year the "CavFanatic" duds were rolled out on January 7, and then worn for at least one game after that. This year they're scheduled to be worn on January 6 against the Wizards.
