The entire NBA has been releasing their new City Edition jerseys recently. The Chicago Bulls followed suit and officially released their 2020-21 City Edition jerseys today. Some have looked better than others, but it’s safe to say the Bulls have one of the better jerseys out there.
The ‘Chicago’ script font is inspired by the directional signs used around the United Center. It’s a subtle nod to their home arena and it makes for a clean look when plastered across the chest of the jersey with gold and red accents.
The uniforms also feature several other creative designs with a sleek gold on black look. The red accents within the lettering and numbers provide a nice contrast to make the design pop even more.
The “No Little Plans” phrase at the bottom of the jersey was inspired by Daniel Burnham, who laid out the design for the city following the great Chicago fire. When speaking of Chicago, Burnham famously said, “Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men’s blood.”
The Bulls have adopted that phrase as “a reminder to our players to always set big goals for themselves and aim higher.” For an organization that has been struggling for years, that stated goal seems rather appropriate as they embark upon a new era highlighted by a new front office and head coach.
