The Orlando Magic will bring back the ’90s as they celebrate their 35th season with a throwback uniform.
Unveiled this morning, Orlando’s 2023-24 “Classic Edition” uniform is blue with sublimated darker blue stars with subtle pinstripes. “Magic” is arched across the chest in white with black trim, a star dotting the ‘i’ and a second star acting in place of the ‘a’ in “Magic.”
It’s a straight-up copy of what the club wore on the road from 1998-99 until 2002-03, a five-season span in which the Magic made the NBA Playoffs four times but could not get out of the first round.

This is the first time the Magic have thrown back to this era of uniform; previously they had only honoured the style of uniforms which came before this one – the style that was made most famous by the first few seasons of Shaquille O’Neal’s career.
