We are currently in that phase of the NBA offseason when teams are planning ahead and figuring out what their upcoming year will be like.
This means they are currently figuring out several rotations, acquiring new talent, and deciding what the team will play like – and look like.
There has been a growing trend lately: multiple teams have debuted throwback jerseys that harken back to the late 1990s and early 2000s.
The latest team to do this is the Milwaukee Bucks, who just revealed their throwbacks to a very receptive and happy fanbase.

Rob Perez was just one of many who loved what he saw, hopping on Twitter to say: “whoever infiltrated the NBA/Nike and *finally* convinced them to go back to the 90s unis i just wanted to say thank you and god bless.”
It seems like most fans have been really receptive to this special brand of jerseys and now people are wondering just how many teams will create their own.
The throwback trend is something that fans love because it reminds them of bygone eras while also respecting the new league of superstars on the rise.
The Bucks jerseys, for example, are modeled after the same ones worn in the late 1990s and early 2000s, when the team was red-hot, winning dozens of games, and almost made it to the NBA Finals.
There is something special about seeing a current superstar like Giannis Antetokounmpo wearing a jersey from so long ago.
More and more teams are going to be releasing jerseys like these and they will definitely fly off the shelves.
Fans are eating these things up and want to add them to their own wardrobes.
