The upcoming 2015-2016 NBA season will feature a wide variety of throwback jerseys. The Indian Pacers however are the first team to pay homage to a fictional basketball team from the movie 'Hoosiers.'

Loosely based on a small Indiana high school that went on to win the national championship, the film became a favorite among basketball fans. The Pacers will don the specialty jerseys on select dates and will fashion the iconic "Hickory" uniform, personalized with each player's name and number.

The release of the throwback uniforms coincide with the 30th anniversary of the movie classic. The memorable red shirt and gold shorts aren't the only pieces of merchandise sold, with the NBA Store and adidas selling Hoosiers-themed t-shirts for both men and women.
