NBA 2K23 is officially released, just over a month before the start of the actual NBA season. With every new 2k release, there’s always a ton to look forward to. New game mechanics, updated graphics, new rosters and more!

Among those things that might only matter to enthusiasts of the game itself, there were actually a few fun nuggets of information that might also be relevant to non-gamers.

With the release of the new game, fans got their first look at some of the new kits for the upcoming season via the in-game files. months, the Hornets were notably one of the only teams to have their “Statement” uniform – essentially Nike’s version of alternate uniforms – kept out of the wind. This wait may be over!

Israel Omondi aka the clean of all Hornets @HornetsCulture shared a post from @NBAunitracker, the Hornets 2022-23 Statement jerseys were found in the HQ versions on the 2K23 files. This is what they look like:

At first glance, they look a lot like last season’s. Same color, same accents, same font, same branding and sponsorship. The notable change for this upcoming season being the replacement of “CHA” with “Hornets” on the chest of the jersey.

Now it’s entirely possible that this is just a placeholder file for the game and could be updated with a different variant later, but for now it looks like the Hornets will be using the majority of last season’s purple uniforms, save a font change up front.
