Man, you can even get Miami Vice license plates? I’m all in on this being their full-time identity.

 

Noticed that link has both white and pink dates on the calendar. I’d assume they snuck in when they plan to wear the pink “Earned” uniforms, too.

Oooh I never thought about that!  Good thought.

 

Edit: The games are just in time for Christmas.....

Lakers Unveil Magic Johnson Tribute Uniforms

November 9, 2018 - 03:39 AM

Lakers-New-City-Uniform-Unveiled.jpg

The Los Angeles Lakers tonight officially unveiled their new “City Edition” uniforms four weeks after they first leaked out. For their “City Edition” series, instead of focusing on L.A., the Lakers have chosen to instead honour important players in their franchise’s history, […]

The pinstripes read 3x5xShowtime. That’s kinda neat actually.

This may be a hot take but it's the hill I'll die on, Sacramento should adopt that powder blue & red scheme full time, purple & silver while unique just doesn't look good for them IMO

 

Purple & gray was a bad idea from the start. Gray doesn't contrast and pop well enough from purple, they should've kept black.

I don't see how that's neat.  You don't see it unless you're actually on the court - and even then you'd have to squint.  Every single last aspect of this seems forced, and I don't see how as a whole, it honors Magic.  Maybe if it had his image in a sweatback design, or something depicting how he rips off low-income people in his community, 

 

Does adding "Los Angeles" to it have anything to do with Magic Johnson?

 

Maybe replacing that with "Magic", so it read "Magic Lakers" would be better, except it still sucks, and would be protested by Orlando.

I think gray looks fine with the purple, and that the Kings' current primary visual issue since they rebranded is that they picked a super-wide typeface for wordmarks for a city with 10 letters in its name.

 

(that said, powder blue and red is a really nice scheme and I wouldn't be opposed to them taking it)

Warriors need to dump the black jerseys and wear yellow a lot more often at home. It looks great on this court.

 

Since this board is in an "it pops" phase (in several threads), the blue numbers do really pop against the yellow. The throwbacks are a great look.

To me these are so close to the regular uniforms that it feels kinda pointless. I guess that's better than following the egregious out-there path of City uniforms.

 

Two major missed opportunities on these for me to make these more distinctive, if we're going to take inspiration from the 80s warmups:

 

- old serif wordmark

- contrast nameplate on the back

 

a la
