It's funny how the guy who did not want his name profited off of and was very secretive when alive is now having his name become a marleting ploy all over. Shame. The design is alright tho

 

Yeah my thought was kinda the same. I thought I remembered his family being upset when Timberlake nodded to him during his SB halftime show and got to thinking, “what are they going to think of this? What would Prince himself think of this if he were still alive?” Doesn’t seem to me like the kind of thing that would bode well with them or him. 

 

The design itself is okay, if not a little forced. I don’t think the shoulder design is really necessary; the use of purple and the Purple Rain font says “Prince” enough. I don’t like the idea of teams nowadays just wearing whatever color they want to on thier alternates, but I guess if you’re honoring Prince, it has to have purple.

Remember how Prince changed his name to an unpronouncable symbol to because his own name had been taken from him by a marketing machine? Okay, what if we took that symbol, and then put a sports team's logo on it, and then sold it?

I’m just happy that no Las Vegas-based team has tried to do something based on the Raoul Duke persona of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson. His estate has thankfully been pretty protective of his image, even shooting down that whole drug-filled “writing schedule” report.

 

I do find it funny how we’ve gone from Prince’s music being verboten online (to the point of not being on iTunes) to his estate mass-marketing his work on all fronts after he died. Choose your executor and wording of your will wisely.

I downloaded eight Prince albums off slsk in the summer of '06 and half-hoped that purple-clad shock troops would arrive at my door if only for a story to tell.

Thanks @FinsUp1214.

 

At least one of them should be the classic purple or the reverse yellows, but neither of them are.

 

Both of them are fashion jerseys consisting of flavor-of-the-month trends, both with BFBS. Because they ditched the classic purple, I have to agree that both of these are trash replacements for the road jersey.

Honestly, I think the magic one is a great alternate IFT

The pinstipes actually are regular pinstripes and not words
The 32 is gone
The "Los Angeles" part of the chest logo is removed.

 

The Purple Alternate, the one with the Black side is immediatly perfect by removing that Side panel and making it all purple.

I wonder if they tried to "toughen them up" since they are a softer shade of purple.

Black isn't a bad color to add to a lakers jersey- just not their Yellow and Purple ones.

What they really should be doing is a Replacements-themed jersey in honor of all their players hating each other and wanting to quit.

Or a Husker Du jersey in honor of not being a very well-known franchise.

0-3 in them, so look for them to win once they wear the city editions and yeah, they'll never wear gold again.

I'm surprised at the negative reception in this thread. I think it's pretty cool.

 

They're not bad for a one year thing -- I'll wait for full judgement after seeing a player wear it. But, I like the idea of honor Prince.

I can't wait until Utah can properly honor The Osmonds. So much potential ... so, so, so much ...

Probably nothing.  Prince is a much bigger deal here (and I say that as a Dylan fan and not a Prince fan).  Plus there's an entire color associated with him and, maybe most importantly, I think Prince, unlike almost any other celebrity, always lived in Minnesota.  People from Minnesota appreciate that quite a bit.

Don't give the Wolves any ideas for next year...
