In taking over the National Basketball Association apparel deal, Nike announced on Friday that scanning the jersey's "jock tag" with a phone will offer the most recent highlights of that specific player and their team.

Julius Randle represented the Los Angeles Lakers wearing a purple uniform.

"Our Nike uniforms set a new standard for connecting our most passionate fans with their favorite NBA teams and players", said Adam Silver, NBA Commissioner.

While the new program can bring added value to a jersey purchase for fans, the value for Nike is much more tangible. It's not yet clear how often teams will wear these new uniforms, but hopefully it's a lot because they sure are pretty sharp.

Run through the gallery above to see players from every team showing off the new jerseys. It was created with new Nike Therma Flex fabric, helps athletes maintain the right body temperature during pregame warm-ups and downtime during a game. On that app, which will be available to owners of an iPhone 7 or an Android device with NFC capability, fans will be able to watch highlights of the player whose jersey they own as well as receive shoe deals.

All Statement Edition jerseys will be available at retail on November 20, and will begin being worn on-court on November 25.
