The Golden State Warriors unveiled the franchise's first-ever Chinese New Year uniforms yesterday, ahead of the official game debut on Friday, February 20th. The new style, designed by Adidas, features Chinese characters (that translate into "Warriors") and use red and yellow colors against a slate-colored background to represent Chinese culture. "We have been working with the NBA for two years now on our Chinese New Year uniforms to recognize the tremendous fan base that our Asian community represents," Warriors President and COO Rick Welts explains in an official statement. The team is also one of the first NBA teams to launch a Weibo account. (They currently have 1.5 million followers.) Pre-orders for the new jersey are available here. Although they won't arrive in time to wear at their debut game (unless purchased at the stadium), there will be three more opportunities to wear them along with the team.
