From Magic's comeback season:

Seeing him against those Bucks uniforms is super weird, like it's some sort of photoshopped era-merger. But it happened.

Love Eddie Jones. Too bad he didn't win a title with the Lakers.

The 1990s NBA in one glorious picture:

 

That was actually a preseason game from October 1994. I can tell because it was Danny Manning's (far left) first season with the Suns and the Magic wore their black road set in that game (they wore their blue alternates during their regular season matchups in Phoenix).

 

This was a nice matchup in that the Suns and Magic appeared to be on a collision course to the NBA Finals that year, so there were definitely seeds to a potential rivalry. A nice color matchup as well.

I'm sure this is on the internet somewhere...but how many seasons did Eddie wear #25 with the Lakers? One?  

 

Edit:  Two seasons, 1994-95 and 95-96.

My favorite thing about this isn't the uniforms, but the completely out-of-place Avia ad in the top right corner.

I mean, what NBA player have you ever seen wear Avias?

Oh, yeah! Forgot all about that! Didn't he end up wearing 6 or 9?

Was that the same game that Shaq broke the backboard?

Yeah he wore 6 from 1996-97 through the end of his career.  Odd to see him wear 25, really!

Pretty sure the league office would intervene.  There's a reason why Dennis Rodman wore #70.

is that a real rule in the rule book or a gentleman's agreement among the players/owners.

And he barely missed winning one with the Heat, too. I think in both cases LA and Miami won the seasons after he left. Too bad indeed, he was a great player.

I seem to recall he wore 12 briefly in between, maybe only for the preseason.  Could be making this up out of thin air but it's pretty set in my mind.  Also around the time I saw him at the dry cleaners across from my house when he and Nick Van Exel were roommates in Culver City.

It seems someone in TNT knew in 1999, the Raptors would ditch the purple for the red in the future.
