I don't mind the new looser rules but I do wish they'd make it so the road team couldn't wear white. That does throw me off.

That's my only issue with the current setup (and it's strange to see the Lakers wear yellow on the road, too — though I'm fine with it in situations where purple wouldn't offer enough contrast with their opponent).

Am I the only one here who actually likes what Nike’s doing with the jerseys and the whole “home team chooses jersey” thing. I mean it’s not hard to tell which team is the home team. And if it is then surely the away team could show some sign of being the away team. Personally I think it’s brilliant. I’ve never understood why the main color of a teams brand would be something the fans of the team wouldn’t even be able to see in person

 

edit: to add on, the lakers always seemed to traditionally wear their yellow jerseys at home. So why can’t  other teams do the same?

Bc back when TVs had no color you had to have white vs color. It then became tradition. I don’t hate the idea of constant color v color. As long as the road team doesn’t wear white. But Nikes uniforms are garbage, but since they’re Nike they sell like hot cakes, sadly

I'm only fine with it if a team really wants to wear a color alternate at home and so it forces the away team to wear white. It's like a reverse of the NFL's white at home and that's fine with me.

Geez what a 5. A lot of Option 1's though. Could be a recipe for disaster, especially with Butler involved.

They're the Lakers, not the Pacers! Wear gold at home!

As much as I'm not a fan of the ASG jerseys, they're better than those ... those look like a minor league practice jersey.

I don’t care where the game takes place, Lakers in gold/yellow vs Celtics in green looks much better than Lakers in purple and Celtics in white.

I definitely agree, but I still miss seeing those matchups once in a while. It shouldn’t take a finals appearance to see the two most iconic teams in the league in the uniform matchups that made them iconic in the first place.

 

Even if that were to happen, we’d probably get some black Celtics and pinstripe Lakers jerseys thrown in just because it’s 2019.

Always a great matchup, but in my view, the below photo is just as classic. That said, if the Lakers are going to have garbage weird purple jerseys, maybe it's best to leave them behind for Celtics games even when in Boston.

Oh no, the jersey doesn’t match the shorts. “It’s Nike’s fault!” /s

 

Also, I think the city name on the road vs the team name at home idea is overblown. There are numerous examples of teams having only one or the other across all of their jerseys, even historically, as the Lakers and Celtics both used to have their respective team names on their both their home and road sets.

You can really see the color difference in the golds.

I shouldn't have to squint and see a scorebug to see who's who and home vs Away. Too many times i'll be in a bar or restaurant that has games on and it'll take me way to freaking long to figure out who the hell is playing etc... It was one thing for special events (xmas etc) to have a ONE OFF jersey game. Even with a throwback or an alternate that was essentially just a "TEAM COLOR" recolor of Home and Away you still could easily identify who was playing. Not even close to the case anymore and it's beyond frustrating.

 

I'm not even old and it bothers the hell out of me. It's my generations fault. I know.

It makes me sad that both the Rising Stars and Celebrity uniforms are vastly superior to the phoned-in look of the marquee event. They really could've done something special with the theme they had at their disposal.
