CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The NBA and Nike introduced the Cleveland Cavaliers' “Earned Edition” jerseys into the team’s uniform selection.

The new uniform editions will be worn by all 16 NBA teams that “earned” a spot in last seasons playoffs.

The Cavaliers will debut the white, powder blue, and navy version in Cleveland against the Miami Heat on Jan. 2.

The newest variation is similar to the “City Edition” jerseys. Both uniforms symbolize Lake Erie, while the “Earned Edition” represents a frozen version of Northeast Ohio’s valuable resources.

The collection will be available for purchase beginning Dec. 19.
