  1. Saw this apparent leak of the Galaxy's new primary kit making the rounds on Reddit: Per the comments section, sounds like the typical blue sash has been swapped out for a silver one to commemorate the Galaxy's 25th season, and the three short stripes to the left of the collar are part of a new, league-wide motif that references an early '90s Adidas template. I doubt the Galaxy could have refused the stripes if they're something that Adidas has imposed onto all MLS kits debuting this upcoming season, but I don't understand why the team would agree to muddy up their established brand with a silver sash that won't be removed until 2022. Emphasizing silver to this degree in observance of a "silver anniversary" is a bit extra, and it might even be reckless for the Galaxy to put out this bland primary kit that lacks any blue or gold outside of the Adidas, Galaxy and Herbalife logos considering the splash that LAFC's streetwear-friendly brand has made in LA in just the past few years. Also, the Adidas stripes look especially weird in this leak since silver isn't a primary team color and the secondary kit from last season doesn't have them. Things might look disjointed next season too unless kits that debut in 2021 also have the shoulder stripes.
  2. Spotted this on Twitter. Does this suggest an Elgin Baylor-era throwback for next season? Edit: The image comes from this video that the Lakers tweeted out: https://twitter.com/Lakers/status/1186405674223202304
  3. Not sure if this has been posted anywhere, but it seems like teams might just wear their City uniforms on Christmas. Kind of strange that Nike would add superfluous sets like the "Earned" uniforms but then get rid of the Christmas jerseys. I guess they're trying to force new corporate traditions while eschewing cultural ones?
  4. What's that? Did you say you wanted a second bastardized version of the old purple uniform?
  5. From the Lakers subreddit. I prefer the LeBron photoshop that removed the "Los Angeles" wordmark.
  6. This 2017 ESPN feature on last year's Kobe-inspired jerseys implied that Nike was just going to get Kobe's final approval on a jersey that had nothing to do with his career until he asserted himself into the process.
  7. That was just in 2013, and I don't really count that one since Adidas just slapped the entire logo onto that jersey.
  8. Um, is this just an inaccurate rendering or is there no "Los Angeles" wordmark on that jersey?
  9. It's nice to see the long history of knockoff Lakers gear being honored with this set. Also, is this the first Lakers uniform since the Elgin Baylor days to have the city name on the jersey? They've reinstated it with such class.
  10. I don't get why Nike has to be so obtuse about the Lakers' Statement Edition situation. Nike doesn't have to treat the purples like some kind of bold, fashion-type uniform just because they have become the de-facto alternates as a result of the Sunday whites moving to Association status. Exceptions, such as grandfathering in the gold home jerseys, have been made for the Lakers in the past to protect one of the most storied brands in all of sports. There's no reason to treat the Lakers like they're OKC, and have the Statement uniform be trendy (if it were the '90s) and expendable. Oh well, now I can't wait for the next Statement Edition jersey to be unveiled in two years, so I guess Nike's system of planned obsolescence is already working on me. I just can't believe they imposed it upon the Lakers, of all teams.
  11. Or, it's only one championship in the past three decades. I wonder why Nike would introduce the logo's wordmark onto new practice jerseys but then not do the same with the team's actual jerseys. Clearly, somebody who works for the Lakers or Nike liked that particular wordmark more if they chose to use it over the game jerseys' wordmark.
  12. Thought these Nike practice jerseys were the in-game ones, my bad.
  13. I noticed a few days ago on Fanatics' website that a lot of 2017/2018 products looked like they had angled wordmarks, though I wasn't sure if it was a formatting error or some kind of sneak peek at the new merchandise. On a related note, it's weird that our Summer League jerseys had the Showtime wordmark without the slanted angle.
  14. I don't disagree with you. In light of the 2K leak that seems to cast doubt on the WinCraft leak of the white jersey, here is this person's latest comment, for whatever it's worth: LeBron seems to like the final version too.
