CLEVELAND, Ohio — The Cavaliers kick off their 50th season Wednesday in Orlando. The team, now a full year away from LeBron James’ departure, is filled with promising young players to accompany veterans like Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson.

In fact, the mix of young players and veterans dates back to the mid to late 1990s, which is fitting as the team will wear the classic black and powder blue uniforms from Gund Arena’s early days several times this season.

These are all good reasons, by the way, to update the Cavaliers gear in your closet because, frankly, isn’t it time you retired that LeBron or Kyrie jersey?

Here are 25 of the coolest Cavs items we’ve found to enhance any fan’s gaming look.

In 1997, the Cavaliers were led by an All-Star power forward surrounded by a roster of young players full of potential. Sound familiar? These Cavs, led by Kevin Love, may not make the playoffs like Shawn Kemp & Co. did that season, but they will wear those ’90s colors 8 times throughout the year. This lunchbox kit from the Cavaliers team store comes complete with a retro 1994-95 jersey, socks, pennant and Whammer pin.
