For the franchise's 30th anniversary, the Orlando Magic have some new duds to show off during the 2018-19 season.

Using almost the exact same design as the pinstriped blue jersey the team wore during road games from 1994 until 1998, as well as a new logo, it's sort of a fresh start for a team that's managed to finished among the NBA's bottom-dwellers over the past several seasons.



Or, conversely, think of as a nostalgia-stricken call for the winning days of yore, when all-stars like Shaquille O'Neal, Penny Hardaway, Nick Anderson and Horace Grant were still gracing the Magic's roster.

ESPN's Darren Rovell posted a photo of the franchise's new jerseys earlier today:

According to the website Bleacher Report, in 2011, the publication ranked the Magic's 1994-98 road jersey as the 19th greatest jersey of all time.



Now if only they play as well as they look.
