The Cavaliers have unveiled their fourth and final jersey in the Nike portfolio for the 2017-2018 season. The City Edition uniforms, with "The Land" lettering across the chest, are the first gray uniforms in Cavaliers franchise history.

According to ESPN's Dave McMenamin, LeBron helped design the unis and isn't worried about the social media backlash.

Though the unis at first reminded us forcefully of baby blankets, the gray and yellow color scheme is growing on us. And while the lettering on the side seemed, at first glance, to be a bit too busy, we appreciate the nod to the Guardians of Traffic. We didn't even notice the subtle detailing in the white portion of the striping at first, but it's a nice touch.
