Magic fans, it’s time for you to get used to a different color for your team’s new uniform.

Orlando revealed their new threads as they unveiled their new “City Edition” jerseys at Disney’s NBA Experience at Disney Springs. The uniform’s design carries a deep illustration of its deep relevance to the city’s history.

According to the team’s NBA site, the design honors the citrus industry in Central Florida that kept the area on the map. “This representation of the history of Orlando and Orange County, and our citrus industry in particular, while focusing on the orange,” said Magic CEO Alex Martins.

Long-time center Nikola Vucevic gave the new look a thumbs-up. It’s unique. “I’ve been here a long time and it’s always been black, blue, gray and white and now we’re going to look different,” said the eight-year center from Montenegro.

The jersey features a dominant grey color labeled “anthracite” and the orange text and trim stands out due to its boldness and contrasting color scheme. The letters ORL are stretched across the chest and also highlighted with orange trims around the neck and the sides. Visibly absent in the design is the trademark pinstripes that were present in the team’s three decades in the league.

The shorts carry the “Magic” word and its trademark logo to keep its identity for the longest time. Along with Vucevic, the new uniforms were worn by Terrence Ross, Khem Birch, Wes Iwundu, Amile Jefferson, Terrence Ross, and Aaron Gordon joined the first public display together with Magic’s biggest icon, Mickey Mouse per Orlando Sentinel article.

The colorways were posted by the team’s Twitter account and Mo Bamba’s personal account but drew mixed reactions from the fans.
