About time… this’ll be sweet:

L.A. Times: When the Los Angeles Lakers take to the floor of the Staples Center next Sunday against the Golden State Warriors, they’ll be wearing the retro uniforms of the 1987-88 championship Lakers, as part of the NBA’s heritage week program.

“It isn’t so different from the current uniform,” says John Black, the Lakers’ vice president of public relations. “The uniform hasn’t really changed much over the last 20 years.”

    what season did they use those black jerseys? 2004-2005 maybe?

  • Ignard

    they NEVER wore black jerseys

    This is not the exact replica from which they wore in the late 80s. The shape of the shoulder portion on the top of the jersey was more thinner and skinnier. I know because I magic’s, shaq’s, and kobe’s jerseys before the 2000 season before they moved to the Staples Center.
