There’s no better time to celebrate your favorite NBA teams than the beginning of an action-packed playoff season — one already chock-full of exciting wins, and if anything like last year’s tournament, sure to bring in even more record-breaking achievements and historic advancements.
No. 1 seed Phoenix can be expected to bring a strong game to the Western Conference, while the Eastern Conference will likely see close matches between the Heat, Celtics and Bucks. Whichever team you’re rooting for, celebrating your favorite star players with fun and stylish NBA merch, from a Booker or Antetokounmpo jersey to a Stephen Curry MasterClass.
Devin Booker Jersey
Even though the Phoenix Suns didn’t secure the Championship title last year, they put out a strong fight during the last leg of the series, advancing to the finals for the first time in 28 years. Cheer on star player Devin Booker, who is sure to bring some of the same MVP moves he pulled during the team’s final run last year.
Giannis Antetokounmpo Jordan NBA Swingman Jersey
Snag the exact jersey that Antetokounmpo wore while celebrating with the MVP trophy following the Bucks win last year. The Jordan Swingman packs an athletic-inspired fit and double-knit fabric with Dri-FIT technology for a breathable jersey with quick moisture absorption. Plus, it’s made with 100% recycled polyester construction for a sustainable kick.
New York Knicks Hat
The New York Knicks aren’t necessarily the luckiest team in the NBA but they boast some of the most loyal fans. Let everyone know that you’re part of the Knicks army with this sleek hat, offering a fitted construction and flat bill for a streetwear look.
Giannis Immortality ‘Force Field’ Nike Basketball Shoes
Giannis’s stylish line of basketball shoes for Nike got some new additions last year, including these Immortality “Force Fields” that come in two different color variations: black for a more subtle look and pink for a pop of color. Aside from style, though, they offer a game-forward design perfect for the court, featuring curved cushioning for smooth strides, Euro step control, lightweight containment and a plush look and feel.
Phoenix Suns Gorilla Tee
The Phoenix Suns Gorilla is not only adorable but also the first-ever mascot to be inducted into the Mascot Hall of Fame. Give the Suns some love with this colorful tee, featuring a funky and colorful graphic of the Suns’ gorilla twirling two basketballs.
Boston Celtics Retro Garden T-Shirt
This vintage green tee offers a unique way to rep the Boston Celtics, referencing the team’s Irish inspiration with an old-fashioned graphic of a basketball player smoking a pipe with a four leaf clover jersey on.
Stephen Curry Teaches Shooting, Ball Handling & Scoring on MasterClass
For NBA fans who also like to shoot hoops themselves (or at least would like to), MasterClass offers an online course taught by Golden State Warriors point guard Steph Curry. This class is the perfect last minute present — no need to worry about delivery.
WNBA Orange Hoodie
Fashion and basketball have always been synonymous, so there’s no excuse to not look fabulous, even on your couch. In the year of sweats, show some love to the WNBA. This now iconic orange hoodie has been seen sported by our WNBA heroes (naturally), but also LeBron James, Chris Paul, Damian Lillard and all your favs.
‘Playing For Keeps’
If you’re a fan of ESPN’s “The Last Dance” docuseries, pick up David Halberstam’s “Playing for Keeps” which chronicles Michael Jordan’s colossal career with the six-time champions the Chicago Bulls. Capped by the 1998 NBA finals and the team’s second three-peat, the insider coverage from Halberstam’s experience on the road with the team is like no other. And if you’re looking for another option, may we recommend the author’s additional basketball tome following the ’79 Portland Trail Blazers, “The Breaks of the Game.” And additional Bulls merchandise check out the this vintage Jordan jersey from ’97 -’98.
A beautiful Mitchell & Ness jersey is an excellent tribute to any of your favorite players. For example, this jersey is from the late Kobe Bryant’s rookie season.
Pop-A-Shot Basketball Game
Relive your Chuck E. Cheese glory days and show your kids who’s still the boss. This is the ultimate arcade game for the basketball connoisseur. The official “Dual Shot Sport Basketball Arcade Game” has 10 different games, 6 audio options and can easily fold up and be tucked away.
Seems obvious, but isn’t it time to toss the deflated ball in your garage and upgrade to something a little nicer? This indoor/outdoor composite leather basketball is the official NBA size and weight. Or go all out and invest in a ball signed by Lebron James…
NBA Jam Arcade Machine
We all love “NBA2K”, but sometimes you just want a little bit of nostalgia. This four-player recreation of the classic “NBA Jam” arcade game can also link up to wifi.
