Agree, but why rock the boat? Celtics are keeping true to their greens and whites. Yankees still wear pinstripes...
A franchise is easily associated and identified by its colors, especially one with a proud history such as the Lakers. However the true measure of a franchise is not what color the team wears be it Blue,Purple,Gold,White or Black but what they accomplish!!!
Bottom line, wasn't it cool that we were the only team not to wear white? Yes or no? I'm saying yes and the efforts to appease the young fans with these niche colors is silly. Lakers have been so good for so long and that results in certain "fans" wanting to enjoy Laker success while dressing in popular colors.
Like I said, if people like black so much, be a Heat fan. It's got hot red too!!!
And to the mod that is equating this to the Bucs - Really. REALLY? The Bucs were the worst franchise of all time while they wore their orange. They change their colors to red and black and happen to win a SB right after. Seriously doubt Bucs fans cared about throwing their history away at the time of the switch. Personally I think the Lakers accomplished a little more that the TB Bucs IMO.
