Clearly! Those colors and that font were terrific. Especially for that era, and especially compared to every other team and every other Mavs look. It was cool at a time when the Mavs were not cool.

 

Green and blue is still underused in sports; the Mavs could own it.

 

flip the number and the wordmark, and those would look better. plus those jerseys were too baggy to have a wordmark on the stomach, it looks tacky.

Yes and no. I loved their use of green and I also enjoyed the Mavs wordmark, but the side panels and neck/shoulder trim were just awful.

Originally the Lakers said their City unis would honor a legend every year...which is why we got the Kobe and Magic unis...is this supposed to honor a specific legend from the 60s/70s? Or just that era in general?

They look to be more gold, which is great. 

Remember, that's just a t-shirt using the wordmark / # that will be on the jersey. The new CIty jersey will be the same yellow that they've been using for their Icon jerseys.

 Or Kurt Rambis....but I digress.

 

That City edition for the Lakers looks just like a throwback so why didn't they just make it a classic edition and go with something different on the City set. So will this city set have pinstripes like last seasons?

 

Also did the "Earned" editions not sell well or have negative responses from the players? I actually liked the "Earned" sets.

Jerry West, especially since those look to be modeled after late 60s/early 70s jerseys.

I was thinking there are several Lakers legends who wore that style, along with Jerry...didn't know if they were trying to single anyone out.

Here  are a couple of interesting finds on Twitter. spacer.png

 

So unoriginal.  Gee, how many ways can we recolor the The District of Columbia design

 

Honestly its hard to keep track now. I would have guessed a blue version already existed, but I guess we'll get blessed with these this season, yippee

I’ll never understand why the Lakers don’t want to do an alt with just Los Angeles on it.

Yeah. These jersey names/designations are laughable if a city set is simply a classic design. It’s all a bunch of crap at the end of the day. Home/away/alternate 1-2-3. That not will never change in my eyes.  They now need to institute percentage worn rules for jerseys. If one is to be designated as home, it actually needs to be worn a majority of time you know, at home.

I don’t mind four alts ... I am just not a big fan of a new city jersey EVERY YEAR. Three years in now and just feels like too much.

Except the designations aren't home or away anymore. Association, Icon, Statement, City...all can be and are worn whenever and wherever

It's very clear there is more to this Lakers city uniform than a dumb shirt is letting on. The fact that the Lakers wordmark is white with purple drop shadow is enough of a difference.

Yea well as long as people keep buying alts, they'll keep making them.  I love having four Miami Heat Vice unis because there are four colors to the set.  But for some other teams yea there's only so much you can do without repeating.

I'm glad there's a new uniform. But I wish that if they took the time to redesign the jersey that they also tweek the script and logos.
