Lakers Officially Unveil New Uniforms for 2018-19

Recommended Posts

Tradition aside, the black side panels on a purple background just look bad to me because the colors don't contrast enough.

Holy crap. These look really good, and then the purple one showed up. Why were the black panels used? I guess this firmly plants the purple as just an alternate and not the true road uniform.

 

I don’t really care for the yellow at home thing (I prefer the white), but purple on the road was cool. A yellow road uni is gonna take some getting used to.

Is there a "Worst uniform in team history" thread? If so, these jerseys have to be added there.

Not even top-three.

Black can be done well, but I don't really understand it here on the purple jersey. Reminds me a bit of Illinois randomly adding black panels to their navy jerseys in the mid-00s.

Nah you're not. Just not the majority voice. I ordered the purple one so no you're not.

I think he's thinking it's the jersey to honor Magic -- which will be their designated City Jersey.

The City uni is purple.

The black panel is an abomination for the following reasons:

 

1. It's not part of the color scheme

 

2. It's inclusion serves no particular purpose

 

3. It just looks off aesthetically.

You heard it here first. City uni will be standard purple without side panels

Based on what? Why would they hold that back and introduce the outlier jersey with the other standard ones first?

That looks like last seasons Nike jersey with the panels, not the new one.

Isn't that supposed to be some sort of tribute jersey to Magic?

If that’s the case, then perhaps it could be the classic purple uniform without the black stripes. Maybe it’ll even have the era appropriate white number with yellow drop shadow. Regardless of what they do with the City Edition, I am disappointed in the primary purple set because that one is here to stay whereas the City one is planned obsolescence. The rest of the set is great. The purple is a slap in the face to tradition.

Difference here being those were for sure "alternates" while this purple is sort of pretending to be a main "ish" jersey and it screws everything up.

Yeah I'm disappointed on the purple one. Why add black if the City one might be full color of black.
