Los Angeles Lakers 2018-19 Uniform Discussion

Recommended Posts

So I’m confused, is this just an alternate or the whole set (home and away too).

All three.  Icon, Association, and whatever equally stupid name they came up with for the third uniforms.

^ Statement Edition is the purple one, lol.

 

And yea, as for the 2017 City Edition influence, that is the the rounded 3-line collars and the drop shadows on the numbers. It does seem like the drop shadow will be slighter on these new unis than the stronger drop shadow on the 2017 City Edition unis. We'll see.

This is where they messed up tradition... Lakers home uniform is the gold one, and that should be the Association, not the white one... the Icon edition should be the purple one, when I think of the Lakers and how iconic they are, while the gold jersey is almost default, Magic Johnson hitting the Celtics with the baby hook, is what I think of most. The statement should be the white jersey, keep in mind, the white jersey didn’t come into existence until Chick Hearn died.. I really did enjoy being he only team without a white uniform. And to see the Lakers wearing the white jersey at any time other than on Sunday at Staples Center is downright disrespectful.

Ohh ok, so why would you buy a Lebron jersey in the old lakers look?

To be the one to say “I got a LeBron jersey before everyone else”

For what it's worth, the Lakers are selling this commemorative LeBron coin card that features gold and purple numbers:

In comparison, here's the coin card they sold for Lonzo's first game (with a white #2 that matches the jersey he is pictured in):

Impatience.  But the online store is taking pre-orders for the new jerseys with Lebron's name and number.  Sight unseen.

Wait, okay, someone help me out here, because NBA jerseys have become way too damn confusing.

 

Last season, the Lakers had a gold jersey, a purple jersey, white jersey, the Black Mamba jersey, and the MPLS throwback. Is that correct?

 

If so, what jerseys are returning next year? Based on Lakers tradition, of course there will still be gold and purple. Based on that tradition, I would also assume the white returns in some forms. Is the Black Mamba jersey returning? Is the MPLS jersey returning? Are all the jerseys getting this redesign? Do we actually know anything for sure?

 

GOLD: YES

PURPLE: YES

WHITE: YES?

BLACK: ?

MPLS: ?

^ Both the black unis and MPLS unis won't be back for this upcoming season. They'll only have one additional (City Edition) uniform to the 3 that we'll be seeing unveiled at the end of the month

Okay. Thanks.

 

Shame. I wanted to get a LeBron Black Mamba jersey as a sort of best of both worlds. But I'm a stickler for the player whose name is on the jersey to have actually played in that jersey. (i.e. sure, you could get Magic Johnson on a current jersey. It's gold and purple and says Lakers, but you'd be wrong.)

Isn't every team also getting some kind of team-unique Christmas jersey as well?

I just want the Lakers wearing Yellow at home and Purple away again. 

 

So does everyone else. Which is why it'll happen like four times next season.

 

I don't think I'm quite ready for my nightly annoyance with Nike's uniform choices.

Getting rid of the side panel is a huge upgrade. It goes against tradition, but I like it.

No it doesnt, the only set with side panels was the Kobe/Shaq era
