The black pinstripes aren't very visible against the purple, but it's a neat little design touch. Wouldn't mind seeing it stick around permanently.

This isn’t unpopular opinions man anyways if this had No Pinstripes then I’d love it

That Cleveland uniform is lovely. Maybe going back to blue/orange could be a nice way to detach from the LeBron era.

I'd rather them be connected Lebron than look like Knick Jr.

Warriors need to dump the black jerseys and wear yellow a lot more often at home. It looks great on this court.

But still don't understand how it is connected to Magic. Seems so generic.

Man, you can even get Miami Vice license plates? I’m all in on this being their full-time identity.

 

Noticed that link has both white and pink dates on the calendar. I’d assume they snuck in when they plan to wear the pink “Earned” uniforms, too.

Oooh I never thought about that!  Good thought.

 

Edit: The games are just in time for Christmas.....

Lakers Unveil Magic Johnson Tribute Uniforms

November 9, 2018 - 03:39 AM

Lakers-New-City-Uniform-Unveiled.jpg

The Los Angeles Lakers tonight officially unveiled their new “City Edition” uniforms four weeks after they first leaked out. For their “City Edition” series, instead of focusing on L.A., the Lakers have chosen to instead honour important players in their franchise’s history, […]

The pinstripes read 3x5xShowtime. That’s kinda neat actually.

This may be a hot take but it's the hill I'll die on, Sacramento should adopt that powder blue & red scheme full time, purple & silver while unique just doesn't look good for them IMO

 

Purple & gray was a bad idea from the start. Gray doesn't contrast and pop well enough from purple, they should've kept black.

Nothing says contrast like purple and black.

It definitely popped more with white than this gray that gets lost there.

The gray gets lost on their current jerseys?

Yes, looks very bleak and muddled. The wordmark in particular.

For comparison:

It's been revealed Magic Johnson helped design the uniform like how Kobe helped with the last one.

I don't see how that's neat.  You don't see it unless you're actually on the court - and even then you'd have to squint.  Every single last aspect of this seems forced, and I don't see how as a whole, it honors Magic.  Maybe if it had his image in a sweatback design, or something depicting how he rips off low-income people in his community, 

 

Does adding "Los Angeles" to it have anything to do with Magic Johnson?

 

Maybe replacing that with "Magic", so it read "Magic Lakers" would be better, except it still sucks, and would be protested by Orlando.

I think gray looks fine with the purple, and that the Kings' current primary visual issue since they rebranded is that they picked a super-wide typeface for wordmarks for a city with 10 letters in its name.

 

(that said, powder blue and red is a really nice scheme and I wouldn't be opposed to them taking it)

Aesthetics in the NBA have fallen off a cliff in recent years. That Cavs uniform looks like some kind of bad 90s tank top and shorts combination that you would have found at Walmart.

Since this board is in an "it pops" phase (in several threads), the blue numbers do really pop against the yellow. The throwbacks are a great look.
