  1. They don’t even look like the Lakers wearing yellow.
  2. I wish the white jersey had gold numbers instead, I feel like that jersey has too much purple; or use gold wordmark. But that jersey looks dope af. This purple one is really bad but since we’re stuck with it, I wish they’d wear black accessories (including leg sleeves). Ditch these next year and match the templates. Since the conversation is also on the plenty of blame to go around, which I do agree with Goth, who would you point at for the gold now being banana yellow? I feel like that would be more on the organization right?
  3. I write on this thread specifically hoping someone who has access to those who make the unis or close to the Lakers read this but those jerseys are just awful. The design isn’t that bad, and the jersey looks a lot better on the court but so much is happening within the jersey that’s so distracting. The bright white (omgggggg) and bright yellow combined with the dark purple and black are like two sides of the opposite spectrum and, the white and yellow are a very bad eyesore when watching the game. Add in the yellow wordmark and yellow numbers (should definitely be white) and it’s going to be prettt hard to watch the Lakers in the jersey on the road with the other teams colors surrounding. I just cant believe Nike didn’t deem the purple jerseys a thing last year, when the jerseys were normal, only to give us this... the same exact jersey with a different spin. I’m writing this in the hopes of someone who works for the organization or for Nike to bring back the default purple Showtime next season. (Along with the blue 1960 uniforms )
  4. Lakers can wear yellow and white for the rest of the year, I don’t even care.
  5. Nike will give you a bronze goldish jersey, with purple numbers and word mark, and add a captain patch for Lebron, in honor of Kareem. (The bronze paying homage to the “golden era” of basketball Kareem played in) something silly like that
  6. The yellow socks and presumably yellow leg sleeves/compression pants (I personally prefer black) may help it’s case. I envision Nike going to try and make them wear this on Staples Center where the jersey may not look as bad? The fact that the Lakers have two purple jerseys, and neither are the traditional road jersey they should have is going to be hard for me s personally to let go of, as a Laker myself lol. Already can’t wait for next year.
  7. As long as I’ve been on this site I’ve yet to figure out how to install images but here’s my idea on what I thought a Magic Johnson tribute would look like. In the early 2000’s, the Orlando Magic had jerseys where they had faded star graphics included throughout the design.. I thought the use of stars was going to be a given for this jersey, considering the name Magic. I thought they would use the use of blue somehow someway on the shorts as a tribute to the blue knee pads Magic wore throughout his NBA career. I would’ve been fine with the pinstripes (had they been the right color - purple) as a tribute to Magic’s business endeavors off the court, but I don’t work for Nike. They’re failing right now, and it’s quite annoying. Has as anyone seen the new Oregon uniforms with the gigantic numbers??? Yeahno

    I feel like the Rams are going to transition into the blue/white jerseys of old.

    Yes it is. The league is about making money, and Los Angeles is a great football market in a sense that, every single week, that new stadium will be filled with people who like football. It doesn’t have to be the Rams, but here in LA, there’s literally a fan of every team out here somewhere. And when you have the opportunity to see the New England Patriots finally, instead of traveling up or down, they will show up. Idk how many seats the stadium will have, but if 80,000 people every single week, buying concessions, buying merchandise, inside of your gigantic store, 16x a season excluding playoffs... somebody is making money.
  10. The white jersey the Lakers introduced was dope.. the fact that they’ve only worn them on Sundays and originally Christmas, made it even special. (On top of the fact that the were created in honor of Chick Hearn). Lakers stuck to tradition, the only jersey really designed after that was the Hollywood Nights jersey.. If Nike had kept the original purple jersey, and made these City uniforms, I don’t think the Lakers would be getting this heat. The City uniforms would’ve just been another failed attempt by Nike with City uniforms. Only like 5 jerseys, if that, were good. If these City uniforms were black with purple striping and numbers, the Lakers would have the best jerseys in the league.
  11. The thing with that black jersey is it’s just black + Laker colors on the 1962 version. The City version last year, was just the Showtime/current unis they have, just with designed snakeskin. All that’s cool and what not, but they could come up with many more designs and sets, without black. Black + purple + gold is a weird blend of colors if not used correctly, and idk if they can top that Hollywood Nights scheme. (Miami Vice anyone) What I would love to see go down for next season and maybe years to come, is this 1. Give us the purple set we deserve, and please with white numbers. 2. 1962 version for our throwback, with a matching retro court. Staples Center would be rocking for a retro type of feel. (Idk?) AND I WOULD BE HAPPY. No gimmicks lol, plain and simple, and everybody would eat it up. We can talk to Jeanie Buss and tell her we need that Laker gold back, and we’ll be well on our way to #17, #18, #19, #20 And then Nike can finally design one of these gimmicky jerseys they got for a trend. Make a newer version of the Hollywood Nights uniform, and for the jersey that can celebrate the legend, do either Jerry West or Elgin Baylor. P.S. I have no idea how these jerseys are Magic Johnson inspired. Unless he helped design them, I don’t get it. I was thinking they’d have some type of star effect inside of them like the early 2000 Magic uniforms but pinstripes? I no know?

    Hornets Go Full Retro, Unveil Throwback Court

    The Rockets using that court with their a red/black or red/yellow scheme would be a dream of mine. I never noticed the footprints for the Raptors but that would be soooo dope as well. The AI late 90’s - early 2000’s court is an NBA Courtside all time favorite. Trying to think of more courts as well. Would love for the Lakers to use the Forum if it were for Jerry West already doing that with the Warriors.
  14. It was time for a change with the set they previously used for the past 20 years. Once Kobe retired and the Lakers literally had to start all over, a new set is something I was praying for, especially to usher in a new era. If not for this stupid association/icon crap and those horrid purple uniforms, these uniforms would’ve been perfect for this current team.
  15. @colortv I think it’s going to be a little darker than the banana but I presume the jersey will still be as light as the yellow on the Lakers floor. The jersey looks good, but I really hope they don’t wear white and black accessories. Last year I thought we (yes we) looked best with the purple leg sleeves and purple socks (gold uniform). Not sure if Stance still does the NBA socks but they had some pretty dope patterns two seasons ago.
