The Lakers have always done a good job, updating their uniforms with the times without killing Laker uni aesthetics.

 

However.....this time, they really, really need to clean up their primary logo...

It needs an update more than their uniforms do...

 

Negative. The logo itself is more iconic than Magic Johnson

I disagree. I used to think the Lakers’ logo needed a facelift, but every attempt at doing it looks worse. 

The Lakers’ logo is a bit rough, but it’s earned its classic status.

Lakers online store is now word marking all the jerseys with a "subject to change" tag. Looks like a full makeover in the works

Could be because he may change his number too. Is that on all jerseys, not just Lebron?

All of them have the wordmark, not just LBJ

Just to be clear, they do need to keep that logo, just clean up the ragged edges and fix it with better outlines like the Arizona Cardinals did.

I used to think this about the Carolina Hurricanes. Every concept with warning flags was worse than the original jerseys until the recent design team came up with the subliminal pattern idea for the flags. The Canes jerseys now look great, up to date, and look like the Canes again.

 

I think if the Lakers hire the right designers, something nice can be done. Even if it's just subtly minor changes.

LeBron should have "LeBron" on the back of his jersey instead of James.  He goes by his first name everywhere anyway.  He's like Neymar or Ichiro.

Ichiro

Ichiro uses that on his jerseys because that his surname.

So this is a primary jersey redesign?  How did this slip through the cracks without anyone knowing (or hinting) about it?

 

I thought they did a great job last time they redesigned, and I'm not sure how they can improve upon it without looking too much like the Magic-era uniforms.

 

Maybe keep the current cut but bring back the side stripes and purple numbers w/ shadows?  Or the opposite - go back to the old template but keep the current numbers?

Not sure tha'ts true.  In Japanese, his name is Suzuki Ichiro, so Ichiro is his given name.

Well look at that. Never knew that. Thanks.

I'd be down for something along the lines of this:

The Christmas uni was kind of copy-pasta'd around the league, but going to something script-y/flow-y like that would be appropriate for the franchise.  Keep it minimalist/classic and don't you dare do what the Clippers did.

Besides the "gotta have them all" collector, I have no idea how anyone could preorder a jersey sight unseen.

How did this slip by Conrad? Or did he just remain silent?

 

Not much bigger news than a team like the Lakers getting a complete uni rebranding

The logo is a classic. It stays.

 

I'm okay with the idea of a uniform change (their set got hit hard by Nike), but I have doubts that they're going to get it right.

With how our culture handles preorders in general, it's a wonder anyone can afford rent and groceries.
