Best analogy I've seen regarding the inclusion of the black panel on this set.

Thanks to @niewiadomski51, here is color comparsion of Lakers jerseys from Champion to Nike:

So effectively the Lakers are wearing yellow now (although honestly there isn't a whole lot of change). I actually prefer yellow as a color to gold, although the idea of "purple and yellow" is odd to me.

My hatred for Nike doubles every time I see that side panel.

For those of you who wanted side panels, be careful what you ask for.

Hey guys look! It’s another one of those nfl to nba crossover concepts! Really sharp work on combining the Ravens and Lakers!

I'm confused as hell about that black side panel. Was it just for LeBron because he's obsessed with black jerseys or something?

Stupid Nike always f-ing it up.

Has anyone gotten a good look at the shorts? Are we looking at panels like showtime or stripes like some thought?

It's a combination of Showtime era shorts and Kobe era shorts.

God , whatever happened to Champion, Ripon and even Rawlings. Nike's just going to get the money grab from this monstrosity (because of the casual, gotta match my clothes fans) and switch the panels out. They re just taking a page out the the NHL Reebok book. Hey, Give Majestic a shot,  the only bad or questionable unis in MLB are the Brewers,Dbacks and Padres. Look it up. The Padres will be back in brown and all will be right in the world, except for the panel on the Lakers jersey.

Those side panels are some of the worst things I've ever seen in uniform design, all things considered.

This set is SO good and the black panel is SO bad I'm just flabbergasted.

@colortv absolutely right - that 2k pic looks amazing but that black panel is just . . . 

 

Usually Nike gives a little schpeel about why each and every little design aspect has meaning. Did they give one for the black side panel? “To represent the darkness of the souls of the people of Los Angeles”?

Oh no everyone, I found a spiel and it’s quite spiel-ly:

 

The Nike uniforms have been created using NikeConnect technology. Each adult-sized Nike NBA Connected Jersey will have an embedded NFC (near field communication) chip that will launch real-time team and player content such as pregame arrival footage, highlight packages and top players’ favorite music playlists – all on the jersey owner’s mobile device. Throughout the season, a wealth of exclusive offers and experiences will bring fans closer to the game they love.

After downloading the NikeConnect app, fans can tap their phone on the tag at the bottom of the jersey to unlock the full Nike Connect experience based on the player whose jersey has been tapped.

The uniforms are comprised of recycled PET bottles, a combination of Alpha Yarns and recycled polyester (each uniform represents approximately 20 recycled bottles). This modernized, sweat-wicking, sustainable design has a vastly improved fit with altered construction and hemlines on the shoulder, along with the bottom of both the jersey and shorts allowing for a full range of motion”

These redesigns are done several years in advance so there is no way the Lakers would have done these with LeBron in mind. They went with black because BFBS.

Nike and Adidas can both go get rammed. I swear to god their only goal is to intentionally f*** up uniform rebrands just for the free publicity.

 

The purple one is awful but that white jersey sucks some major ass too. The gold is the only one that even looks okay.
