As the finality of playoff season weighs on fans, they can still look forward to the next great spectacle in basketball that will change the lives of 60 players forever—the 2018 NBA Draft.

To help fans commemorate the occasion, New Era has released 'NBA Authentics: Draft Series,' a collection of caps that highlight each franchise colorway with design elements unique to their team city, and are available now at Champs Sports.

Using localized patches and pins, the caps pay homage to the league’s 30 team cities with embellishments representing something unique for each franchise, like a city or state flag detail, or an alternate team logo. These team color caps will also be the very same ones draftees will be rocking tonight as they make their team debut at Barclays Center in New York.

Fans will also have a chance to cop a limited edition, Champs-exclusive two-cap set decked out in custom NBA-themed packaging. Featuring a team color cap and an exclusive white crown colorway, the set comes in a collectible all-over logo print box and contains two additional team-specific pins, both exclusive to Champs. Going the extra mile, the set comes packed in 14 New Era-branded ping pong balls, a reference to the 14 NBA lottery teams.

While all 30 teams are represented in the Draft Series collection, the Champs-exclusive cap set is limited to the Warriors, Cavs, Knicks, Bulls, Celtics, Heat, Lakers, and Rockets.

Look for the 'NBA Authentics: Draft Series' collection now available at Champs Sports stores and online, and tune in to the 2018 NBA Draft live at 7pm ET on ESPN.
