Joke if you must but the Lakers could do a theme honoring international players and their contributions to basketball.

Ok you’re right but in astronomy there is only one Sun. Most everything that has to do with the Sun in Spanish is El/del Sol. 

 

The proper way to do it is in the native language.

 

When’s the last time you saw Real Madrid be called Royal Madrid? And we don’t call hockey teams the Canadians or the Nordics either. Nobody translates it, so there’s no reason to translate Anerican teams. 

 

Maybe it’s not done as much now, but I distinctly remember watching a Mexican telecast of the 1995 World Series in Spanish class, and the announcers referred to the teams only as “los Indios” and “los Bravos.”

I'm trying to like them, even for a one year thing. I just can't. 

 

Out of curiosity, does anyone know what legend will be honored next year?

Wouldn't shock me if they went with Kareem or Shaq

Which is weird, because they could have timed a Shaq jersey with the new statue.

 

Though I bet they honor players that weren't contemporaries to LeBron James. So maybe in the next few years West, Kareem, Wilt, Elgin Baylor, and Mikan for fun. At least go through the old guys until LeBron retires.

That would work far better.  I just hate this look of the new CIty jersey.  It just looks all kinds of awful

Love the collar and arm trim, going to need a better look at those side panels because they look really wonky

In the QMJHL, the French names aren't translated to English for the rest of the CHL. 

 

For example, they're always the Gatineau Olympiques, Val-d'Or Foreurs and Victoriaville Tigres, not the Olympics, Drillers and Tigers respectively.

Are people still glad that Nike took over? There is literally nothing about anything Nike has brought to the table that i've been able to say "ok, not bad".

New Lakers uniforms (except black stripe on purple uni)? Clippers unis (except alternate), few City unis, Grizzlies also looks good.

With what's been beaten to death in the Lakers thread already ... the alternate as an alternate isn't the worst jersey ever, but there's nothing about it that truly represents Magic.
