SUGA, South Korean rapper Providing creative input and concepts for the NBA apparel collection


Jakarta, IO – The National Basketball Association (NBA) and Mitchell & Ness announced a new NBA capsule collection, in collaboration with NBA global ambassador and BTS star SUGA. 

The South Korean rapper, songwriter and producer also provided creative inputs and concepts on the apparel line, featuring t-shirts, hoodies, jackets, shorts, and headwear across six NBA teams: Brooklyn Nets, Chicago Bulls, Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Clippers, Los Angeles Lakers and New York Knicks. 

The six teams were selected based on the cities where SUGA performed on his solo world tour SUGA | Agust D TOUR ‘D-DAY’. The SUGA’s Agust D moniker can be seen on the new SUGA x NBA capsule collection by Mitchell & Ness, showing his close relationship with the basketball association and showcasing several design motifs inspired by the D-DAY album. 

The collection will be available at select offline and online NBA Stores, Mitchell & Ness stores, and the Weverse Shop in the coming weeks. Anyone interested in the collection can visit the website to register with an NBA ID and gain access to information for their first purchase. 

“I’m so excited for the next phase of my relationship with the league with the launch of my very own NBA capsule collection,” said SUGA. “As a longtime fan of the NBA and its teams, this collection is incredibly special to me. I look forward to sharing this with all of you.” 

Last September, SUGA attended the NBA Japan Games 2022, featuring the Golden State Warriors versus the Washington Wizards in two pre-season games. He sat courtside and posted some behind-the-scenes on his social media, including meet-and-greets with NBA players and legends. SUGA was also seen attending the regular-season game between the Dallas Mavericks and the Los Angeles Lakers on Jan 12, 2023, and Game 1 of the 2023 NBA Eastern Conference Semifinals between the Miami Heat and New York Knicks on Apr 30, 2023. He also participated in the 2023 NBA Finals campaign, “We Are All in the Finals”.
