Chemist Warehouse Heritage Round Jerseys

ADELAIDE 36ERS With their 2016 Heritage Round jersey, the Sixers have opted to revisit the strip they wore during 1990-94. While 1994 brought heartache to the club when the lost the grand final series 2-0 to the North Melbourne Giants, they tasted glory four years later in 1998 when they beat the South East Melbourne Magic 2-0 to claim their second NBL title. ade CAIRNS TAIPANS The CQ University Cairns Taipans Heritage Round singlet recognises the Cairns region’s two main tourism drawcards: the World Heritage-listed Wet Tropics Rainforest and Great Barrier Reef. The Wet Tropics World Heritage rainforest is represented by the leaf of the fan palm used in the Cairns Regional Council logo. The World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef is represented by the iconic ‘woven fish’ design, made famous by local indigenous artist Brian Robinson’s installation of five steel woven fish at the Cairns Esplanade Lagoon. cns ILLAWARRA HAWKS The Illawarra Hawks will step out in Heritage Round wearing the same blue and gold strip they wore 37 years ago in 1979, the inaugural year of the NBL. The strip was first worn in Round 2 when the Hawks took on the St Kilda Saints at the Snakepit. Incredibly, the Hawks remain the only foundation club left in the completion (although the Brisbane Bullets, another foundation club, will return to the competition next season). ill MELBOURNE CTI Melbourne United’s ‘Victoria’ jersey recognises the extensive contribution Melbourne teams have made to the National Basketball League since its inception. The design features logos from past Melbourne NBL franchises Melbourne Tigers, Eastside Spectres, Geelong Supercats, South Dragons, North Melbourne Giants, Victoria Titans, Southern Melbourne Saints and South Melbourne Magic. mel1 NEW ZEALAND BREAKERS The concept behind the Breakers strip is to recognise the contribution of all those who have worn a Breakers singlet. It includes the names of all players named in the squad since the club’s inception in 2003. nzb PERTH WILDCATS The Wildcats Heritage Round uniform is a replica of that worn by the 1990 and 1991 Championship teams – the only time the club has gone back-to-back. The era was made famous by club legends Mike Ellis, Ricky Grace, James Crawford, Andrew Vlahov and Eric Watterson. per1 SYDNEY KINGS Inspired by the Kings’ 2003/04 uniform, the 2016 Heritage uniform is an ode to the Club’s dominance throughout the early/mid 2000’s when the Kings became the first ever NBL side to win three consecutive championships. Arguably the most memorable of the three Championship victories was in 2004 when the Kings overcame bitter rivals the West Sydney Razorbacks in an enthralling five-game series that would go down as one of the greatest NBL history. syd1 TOWNSVILLE CROCODILES With their 2016 Heritage Round jersey the Townsville Crocodiles are honouring their state league predecessor, the Townsville Suns who competed in the State Basketball League (now known as the Queensland Basketball League). The Townsville Suns first competed in 1986 and their inaugural year brought much celebration as they went on to win the title. tsv1
