During the early 1980s, the Knicks drastically changed their uniforms. The home uniforms would feature the team nickname below the number and the base color was maroon instead of the traditional orange; blue was also darkened to a shade of navy. However in the 1983-84 season they would revert back to the championship-era uniforms and the orange color, which would remain virtually unchanged for the next twelve seasons.
