Lakers Officially Unveil New Uniforms for 2018-19

Recommended Posts

Overall, massive upgrade. But that black panel is totally unnecessary and ruins the purple set.

Well, we heard the city would be purple so hopefully the City jersey will be the classic purple without black trim

The sleeve trim is terrible on all 3.  It's just the lesser evil when compared to the black panel.

Finally someone else said it. It might look okay if the color closest to the sleeve hole wasn’t the same color as the jersey.

I thought there was no way the Lakers could screw this up.  I was wrong.

 

The lesson: Never have faith in anyone.

I hate logos on the waistband, but I had no idea that it would've been nothing compared to the hack job they did on the purple jersey.

IDK i think we are still going strong with BFBS and we are approaching heavy GFGS as well 

I think BFBS has slowed down or died out in the NFL, CFB (GFGS is the thing now), and MLB (Died out). However, the NBA has only gotten worse with  BFBS and they have integrated GFGS at the same time.

 

 

On another note though, I do want to say that the whole “we should of learned our lesson with Nike and the NFL” thing isn’t really valid; before Nike in the NFL there was Reebok and that was not going well at all, and I found Adidas to be just as bad as Nike is in the NBA.

Not going well with Reebok? How so?

 

And your argument about Adidas would hold weight if it weren't for the fact that adidas didnt :censored: with a teams standard home and road. I mean even the teams that didn't change looks , changed look simply by the stupid shoulder template Nike uses

I was also going to mention how much I hate that the NBA doesn’t have standard home and road uniforms. And while I don’t want to get off topic since this is a Lakers thread, but I have to point out almost every NFL uniform the Reebok came out with when they took over in 2002, Detroit twice with black, Cincinnati, Atlanta, Arizona, Jacksonville, Minnesota, Seattle, plus the fabric and template just looked so much cheaper for pro teams compared to College teams at that point. Again I don’t want to talk about the NFL in this thread but while Nike has made some horrible mistakes since 2012 they’ve made some great ones too.

In a vacuum, I actually don't think the purple uniform looks bad, even with the black side panels. But it just doesn't look like the Lakers to me. They should have just had it match the other 2 uniforms.

Everything was going along great here, until Nike decided that the purple had to be a third jersey and they had to cram some black into it to honor the seventh or eighth-best player in franchise history.

Where did you read the black panel is honor a player?

The Lakers had one of the best sets in the league at the end of the Adidas era. The only changes that needed to be made were moving to a rounded collar rather than the wishbone and, before Nike brought out the ‘no more white at home every game’ schtick, buck tradition and change to the white jerseys at home. I know that I’m a traditionalist for the most part but the Lakers had one of the absolute best white uniforms in the league and it was a shame that it was relegated to only one home game per week, at most.

Never expected the Lakers, of all teams, to take their inspo from the 90s Knicks.

So close to a great set for a new era of Lakers ball, and they muddle it up. That black stripe looks terrible & ruins what could've been a 10/10 set. Instead, you got yourself two men on to bring the winning run to plate in the bottom of the ninth & you hit into a triple play. Congrats.

How the heck did they screw up the purple jersey when all they had to do was follow the templates of the yellow and white ones?
