DC Boundary Stones, Stephen Powers of NCS, and Washington Wizards 2023 City Edition Uniforms

Washington Post highlights NBA and DC boundary stones

Of the seven City Edition uniforms the Washington Wizards have unveiled since the NBA and Nike launched their leaguewide initiative in 2017 to celebrate each franchise’s unique ties to its community (and sell more merchandise), this year’s version is the most outside the box.

Stephen Powers, member of ASCE-NCS, the force behind the decade-long volunteer restoration effort of the stones, wonders...

“I’m hoping the tide is going to turn when people see it presented holistically and get the backstory on it, that there will be more pride and understanding,” Powers said. “And hopefully, for me, people are like, ‘Oh, I want to go see these stones.’ Maybe this will get us closer to one day the stones being National Historic Landmarks and getting money to take care of them.”
