Might have already been released, but in case it wasn't i saw the new Lakers throwbacks. Powder Blue jerseys with M.P.L.S in gold.

it certainly could be, but I don't see the Nike logo, so maybe it's just a uniform option in the game?

 

to be fair, though, in my article, I alluded to them having that uni as a possibility for the Classic. just doesn't seem quite "official" without the Nike logo on the top.

Doesn't seem to have Nike's truncated armhole trim or cut in the shorts either. I'd guess it's just a standard throwback option in the game, though it seems likely that the Lakers' throwback will end up being Nike's interpretation of that uni.

Donald Sterling might have been a misogynistic, racist :censored:bag, but at least the Clips had nice unis when he was running the team...

Yeah, that's MPLS jerseys that's been in the game for years now, I can tell because it's lacking detail and realistic proportions of the wordmark and numbers. If there's no Nike logo then it's not official.

Older games had this issue when it was the FleetCenter, too. The baseline in NBA Live '05 had "Boston Celtics" written in the FleetCenter font in the same position.

 

I've always found this weird.  Even to a lesser extent ads in baseball stadiums in games.  How much greed is there if they can't make a mutual agreement for a realistic video game and free advertising within the game?  Part of the stadium naming rights deals ought to allow depiction in game and such. Just like its being broadcast on television.  Same thing with baseball stadium ads.

Well, the polynymous arena in question is owned by a real-life Mr. Burns who, while engineering two NHL lockouts, defrauded disadvantaged Boston children by "forgetting" to make contractually obligated donations to the park district for 20 years, so to answer your question, infinite.

Another good look at the back of what the Nike uniforms look like

 

 

I'm probably not the first to ask, but will the fan jerseys from nbastore be in this cut too? If that's the case then I'm probably wearing throwbacks for the rest of my life.

I remember older 2K games being able to say Madison Square Garden but now it says Knicks Arena.

slightly clearer image, showing the collar better and what also looks like a thin, blue stripe on the side:

Could it be better?  Yeah.  Is it awful? No.  So far, not bad.
