Even before the Warriors and Celtics took to the stage for Game 1 of the 2022 NBA Finals, we knew which uniforms each team would be wearing in every game of the series, throughout a potential Game 7.
As two of the NBA’s most historic franchises, the Warriors and Celtics have iconic looks. Golden State’s royal blue and “California Golden Yellow” accompanying the Bay Bridge logo have become synonymous with franchise excellence over the past eight seasons, while Boston’s home and away uniforms have remained largely unchanged for more than 50 seasons.

When Nike became the NBA’s official kit supplier ahead of the 2017–18 season, the brand introduced several uniform designations:
- Association — White Uniform
- Icon — Primary Color Uniform
- Declaration – Third uniform or other uniform
- City – Alternate uniform inspired by the team’s home region
Gone are the days when the home team was relegated to wearing a white or light-colored uniform, adding intrigue to a team’s clothing choices on a case-by-case basis.
