    Lakers Officially Unveil New Uniforms for 2018-19

    I’m still against the yellow numbers in the purple (I’m open to changing my opinion once I see a real photo of the jersey), but I’m okay with this entire set assuming the classic Lakers shorts stripe is still there. That’s been the only constant during our whole history in Los Angeles and we’d look way too plain without one.

    If that Lakers jersey in the bottom pic is an adidas jersey, then I can assure you it is very gold. I think it’s just the different lighting making appear more yellow.

    He’s definitely accusing a player not a fan, which really explains why he became so fired up in the game, more so than usual. And the game was at the Banc of California too, I’d highly doubt a LAFC fan would use that word to one of our own players.

    Except that LAFC specifically asked the USSF if Kaye counted as a domestic player, and someone in that organization told LAFC, yes. Here’s J.Carlisle’s tweet which provides a picture of a copy of the game day roster as provided by the USOC itself, clearly showing that they (meaning the USOC and USSF) have marked Kaye as a domestic player. https://twitter.com/jeffreycarlisle/status/1020114708861399041?s=21 And here’s an article from the LA Times where LAFC claims they have written documentation from the USOC declaring Kaye to be a domestic player. Can’t fault LAFC if USSF itself told them Kaye was eligible as a domestic player.

    That’s a sore loser move from Portland. Lose the match and only then complain about LAFC using too many international players. It’s even more of a pathetic move when considering that the player in question, Kaye, was listed in the pre-match starting eleven, along with 5 other internationals. They should have raised the issue then. Seems like to me had they won, they wouldn’t have complained about it. If I were them, I’d be a bit more concerned about the allegation that a Timbers player used the N-word at Dio last night.

    Nope. The Lakers have never had a purple jersey with gold numbers. It’s always been white number with a gold outline since the Lakers went to purple and gold.

    I really, really hope the purple jersey doesn’t have yellow numbers. That’s going to look awful and ruin what has essentially been our away uniform for over 50 years. It’ll honestly look like a Lakers knockoff rather than an actually Lakers jersey. I’m cool with everything else. Really glad to have gotten rid of the side panels on the jerseys. I don’t love the purple numbers with white outline on the gold jersey (nor the drop shadow), but it’s not terrible. The collar and armhole striping would be improved if it were white-purple-white (or just white-purple-gold) instead of gold-white-purple, but it’s not bad as is. If the white jersey shown is the real deal, I absolutely love that over the previous iteration. Obviously, none of these leaks are confirmed and I want to see the shorts, but I don’t hate these if this turns out to be accurate.

    Take away the drop shawdow (please leave it in the past, where it belongs) and have purple numbers with a gold outline on the white jersey and you’re set. I’d be absolutely fine with that as our new uniform set.

    I hope the Lakers just make some modest changes. For me, a perfect update would be getting rid of the side panels on the jersey, but not the shorts; updating the jersey cut (no more wishbone) while keeping the current word mark and numbers (no drop shadow). IMO, that’d be a nice update with elements of the classic Showtime Lakers and the Shaq-Kobe Lakers.

    Yes. Neymar’s the worst diver. You can’t possibly be attempting to suggest otherwise.

    This has been a very strange two days, as a Lakers fan. This is either going to work brilliantly or fail spectacularly. There’s no in between.

    Really can’t stand Neymar. Acts like he’s having one of his limbs amputated every time he’s touched by an opponent. I know flopping and over exaggerating fouls is common in soccer, but Neymar takes it to another level.

    Please not 9. The number 9 on the Lakers’ font is horrendous. EDIT: Didn’t see the above post, but I’m completely fine with LeBron wearing his #23.

    This is a poor take. You must not watch a lot of basketball if you believe Cousins is awful. A Lakers team with a starting lineup consisting of 1. Lonzo, 2. Hart, 3. Ingram 4. Kuzma/Randle and Cousins at the 5 is absolutely a playoff team. Probably a 6-8 seeded and bounced in the first-round team, but still a playoff team. And for the record, I’m in camp “don’t want Cousins unless LeBron is here.” Yes, he’s an all-star offensively, but he’s also a lazy defender with a poor attitude.
