  1. On top of what others have said, with more teams wearing colors at home, the only jersey we have that truly contrasts other teams is the gold jersey. (I personally don’t mind wearing the gold jersey all the time since it believe it makes the games look aesthetically pleasing, no matter who we play) The purple jersey is growing on me but I’d still rather than scrap it and get it right, but purple at Staples Center doesn’t look bad, so I was hoping they’d do that like once every week/two weeks at a home game. However, the blue classic, and white city jersey look dumb as hell on the regular Staples Center, and despite how beautiful those jerseys are, Jeanie really dropped the ball not creating a fauxback court to match the uni.
  2. I’ve got it as the Lakers refusal to do anything to celebrate the city of Los Angeles, and instead celebrate themselves with the LORE Series of celebrating past legends. It’s arrogant and truly disheartening for me. Would be nice to have an actual “city” uniform
  3. I’m speaking for myself, I don’t think there’s a single city jersey I don’t like (Boston’s is super lame) and I am very pleased with the city uniforms this year. Seems like they’re starting to get it! (Except Boston)
  4. Lakers better do the same thing or I’m going to protest at Staples Center!
  5. I actually happen to be a fan of the Knicks city jersey. Idk what it represents for NYC, but the colors, the gradient, (I’m a huge fan of the circle thing around the numbers teams have been doing—mainly Philly), I think they’ll look great on TV, especially on the home court. idk if there’s on city jersey I’ve seen this year that looks pretty bad. I’m disappointed with my Lakers white/blue/silver because I really wish they would do something to celebrate this city.. they seem to always think of themselves (as in the history of the organization) but not about the city they represent. with my liking of the Knicks, I’ve learned a valuable lesson that to each his own haha
  6. It was posted here last month that the Lakers classic jersey would be the blue jersey from the 60’s. There was a post a couple days ago with the white “edition” of that jersey with the Lakers typeface. I’m assuming the Blue Jersey is the classic, and the white is the earned? (If the white shirt is actually going to be an earned jersey) I only ask because when the NBA last did the earned jersey, they were different colors of the City uniform?!? (If I remember correctly?) I’m just trying asking to settle my fear that the Lakers won’t be getting a city uniform because we’re using the Classic Earned edition to take its place. I’m really looking forward to 6 uniform options of the Lakers next season - white , gold , purple , City , Classic , Earned
  7. I can confirm that the Lakers will indeed be getting at least a court update next season as we add another star that encompasses the center court logo. the stars represent each year the Lakers have won the championship
  8. just gonna go out and say that black shouldn’t be on the purple jerseys, but I’m 1000% us fans in LA would love it if they brought back the Hollywood Nights uniform. It’s a great look for us and pleasing to the eye on our court..
  9. why do the Heat refuse to wear their red jerseys now? I was really looking forward to some yellow/red , white/red matchups. Black and white every other game is boring, red brings out the team color
  10. still kind of is... ticket prices for Clipper games are like 75% of what Laker tickets are. Sad lololol
  11. oh yeah it doesn’t need to be this, but a faux one would be great! Could even just make the key blue (or plain with a blue out of bounds border) and throw the Los Angeles wordmark in the center. ANYTHING but our normal court. i think mainly of the Clippers wearing that Buffalo Braves throwback last year or whenever it was on their court and it looked really really dumb. With teams now who go to classic uni’s also adding classic/matching courts to their set, even alternate courts like the Raptors OVO, I just hope the Lakers continue that trend and don’t think their above “creativity, marketing or whatever this would be” But for selfish reasons, I’d just like to see the Lakers do something new and different. The City jerseys already don’t celebrate the city of LA (which is a huge disappointment, watching them stroke their own ego with their legends—but thats just me) so it’d be nice to see them do something cool for the fans, and something fresh.. walking into Staples Center on a Friday night and they got the classic unis and the blue court—that’s gonna be a helluva Friday night in LA!!!
  12. The Lakers classic jersey REALLY REALLY—DESPERATELY NEEDS a classic court to match. Would be such an amazing thing to walk into Staples and get such a different vibe of a Laker game when a retro blue court or something of that nature! I wish that could confirmed... I wrote Jeanie Buss hella tweets on that.
  13. I’m pretty sure the two teams in LA thing stems from how wide of a range the fan base for all teams in the NFL is here. It could work in a sense that the AFC teams will all visit (theoretically speaking) so Dolphins and Chiefs fans can all come through. LA is a city of many transplants, and those people bring their ties with them, so I’ve run into people who were fans of the Browns because they’re from Cleveland or wherever it is the next person can be from, so I think it’ll work in that sense. 16 home games at Sofi, 16 different teams. Regarding the Chargers trying to fill up 70,000 seats, home and road fans, that’s a different task haha. I also think the Raiders moved to Vegas since it’s “almost” the same distance from Oakland and Los Angeles. So both parties if they wanted to watch, could make the 3-4 hour drive and you’re spending the weekend in VEGAS.. as well as Vegas getting their own team. Sadly I’m a Cowboy fan, but I REALLY do hope this LA move works out just to put on for my city. But the Rams are really dropping the ball and pissing me tf off with this logo, these prices and with the looming jersey fail, I hope the Chargers win before they do.
  14. these mofo’s want $800 for a nosebleed? Lmaoooooo bruh! Bringing football back to LA is going to be a huge disaster.. you built a 70,000 capacity stadium which should’ve been closer to 60K, and you’re not pulling that number in weekly & then to top it off you want to charge that insane amount of money? I hope the Rams fail in all that they do..
  15. Does anyone know how to jump to a page instead of having to go one by one by one by one lol
  16. Electric blue helmets, yellow face mask, yellow pants for the Chargers??? p.s. I also have a strange feeling the Rams jerseys will be a letdown
  17. In some ways I can understand the decision though. Los Angeles is Los Angeles, and the Rams would’ve overshadowed that entire LA and Southern California market. The moment the Rams came back to LA, and Chargers has to find a way to get here too because they truly would’ve become obsolete. What sucks, is they’re even more obsolete now than had they stayed in San Diego. I saw someone a few replies ago say LA cares about the Rams and Raiders only, and we don’t even do that. LA is very much a fan of whoever the hell you want to be, because we didn’t have a football team for so long, that I know a group of fans of almost every team here (which is why football will work here & why I believe the NFL wanted the Chargers since Raiders were set on Vegas). Granted, Chargers and Rams may be playing “road games” depending on who they play, but I’d imagine the stadium still being to capacity. The Chargers are almost playing the long game of trying to reel in a new generation of fans who 20-30 years down the line who will associate them with Los Angeles & I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. It’s still stupid regardless haha cause LA truly truly truly doesn’t give af about a Charger
  18. This is off topic, but I’m so glad I found this website and that there’s a boatload of people out there who are really into sports uniforms and logos like I am. I used to think I was weird when playing NCAA Football or Madden or whatever and always spending too much time looking and messing around with the uniforms. Good job guys for helping me embrace my nerd!
  19. Gotta say, I do like the logos, the LA and gradient is much better than the hat. With them going with royal and yellow, I’m really hoping for a uniform set like this, WITH STRIPED SOCKS!!!
  20. this looks so so much better than what the original leak shows. Oddly enough, I would still like for the helmet to be royal blue/yellow horns. quick question though for someone who may know. If this indeed was the logo, and fan backlash was at an all time high in LA (which I don’t think not a lot of people would care or cry over because LA if fans of many teams) but how long are the Rams required to have this logo until a new one can be made?
  21. I just now saw the perspective that Nike probably introduced black to help with accessories? Like AD and his black cat suit; if it were purple would it be too much? I think yellow stripes on the purple uniform, (a simple copy&past from Showtime) with colored accessories for the Lakers would be dope, it bums me out they don’t do it anymore. It’s been white and black all year. white numbers with the purple uni, yellow shorts panel work is because the size of the white number gives it more pop. (in comparison to black planels and yellow numbers) I personally think the all purple look is a good look here, but the black is truly unnecessary. This exact look with yellow (shorts only) would do perfectly with white numbers. Yellow panels would make it too much yellow with the number, that’s where white brings the balance and completion. {{this entire look is weird, and jumbled, and muddy. Ew is what it looks like}} also, I would love to see the Lakers with purple accessories with the gold uni. It looks pretty good too (not sure if white numbers makes the combo pop) white socks for balance, purple sleeves
  22. Idk how all the guys in suits, in marketing, and all that other business related stuff with the team can sit there in a meeting, and vote that this should be the image of the franchise for the foreseeable future. Everyone should be fired... tried so hard to incorporate LA with the logo; and failed
  23. we wear white on Sundays, so I’m legit glad they wore white. I’m going to be upset when we start wearing white on the road games coming up as lockervision has projected. That’s more stupid than anything. they wore them earlier this year on a B2B against the Jazz (Red Rocks) and Nuggets (black) but these upcoming games are almost unnecessary. Lakers have stated they just didn’t want to overuse the yellow because our purple jerseys don’t really contrast well with teams wearing more colors at home. But the purple jerseys being as awful as they are, idc if they wore them every game lol. Which makes me wonder: what they will do next year for their statement uniforms? Last year we had the purple Magic set, but I’m curious if Nike does something like a gray uniform? My gut tells me they’re going black though
  24. that’s a negative on the white numbers on gold. It should be white numbers on purple without the black piping. It’s literally just a copy of their showtime uniforms.
