Pacers breaking out Flo-Jos uniforms next week

UPDATE: Jan. 29 (5:19 pm) —

The Pacers confirmed Thursday that the team will indeed wear the fan-favorite 90s uniform for the first time against the Pistons on Feb. 4.

The five other dates:
Feb. 22 vs. Golden State
Feb. 27 vs. Cleveland
Mar. 10 vs. Orlando
Mar. 29 vs. Dallas
April 8 at New York.

Current and former Pacers provided their take on the Flo-Jos (via the team).

Paul George: “I like them. They are the best jerseys we have had. They were definitely trendy for their era.”

David West:  “They are cool. I always like the old school look and these are classic in a unique way.”

Reggie Miller: “I have so much respect and admiration for Florence Griffith-Joyner and I’m happy to see the Flo-Jo jersey making a comeback. It kind of makes me wish I could grow back the Bobby Brown haircut and take the court with the fellas.”


The Pacers will wear the franchise’s classic Flo-Jos uniforms from the 90s this season, but it’s now going to be another week before you see them.

They were originally scheduled to first wear them this Thursday. However, TNT has decided not to televise their game against the New York Knicks — for very obvious reasons. The Pacers (16-30) are currently 12th in the Eastern Conference standings, and the 8-37 Knicks are tied with Philadelphia for the second-worst record in the league.

Instead, that Pacers-Knicks game will be played at 7 p.m. on Thursday, and will air on FOX Sports Indiana.

The Pacers are planning to wear the Flo-Jos about five times this season, and are expected to break them out for the first time next week in a home contest against the Detroit Pistons on Feb. 4, sources told They are scheduled to also wear them again when the Cleveland Cavaliers are in town for what surely will be a sell-out at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

The Hardwood Classic jersey – of Paul George, George Hill, David West, and Roy Hibbert, a source said — will be sold in the team’s gift shop for about $110 (plus tax).

The Pacers opened a five-game homestand against the Toronto Raptors Tuesday night. 22 of their final 36 games are at home.

My former colleague Mark Montieth sent a tweet to Reggie Miller asking for his favorite Pacers uniform. Miller’s answer is below:

  1. […] And because of that TV bump, the Pacers are not going to wear their throwback Flo Jo uniforms that Reggie Miller made infamous in New York back when he was torching the Garden on the regular. They were expected to don the throwbacks for the first time this season, but now they are pushing that back, according to Scott Agness of Vigilant Sports. […]
