We'll be wearing them 11/29 against the Warriors....during a home game.

More worried about the banana yellow that Nike is passing off for our gold.

The purples were always my least favorite jersey....but they need to be brought back and featured as our road jersey. What Nike has done with our jerseys is a travesty.

NBA did not properly vet this nike jersey move. Reminds me of last years debacle with the clocks always breaking. I had better jerseys in high school.

Nike is straight up destroying everyones Jersey.  We haven't seen the purple Jersey at all, not even a hint. White is for Sundays.  Bring Adidas back.

Excited for  1. Lebron! (Still love me some Kobe, but damn this guy is amazing) 2. Another big get (Whether in FA or in a trade we need some attractions and closers) 3. Young Guys making big jump (Assuming we have anyone left after more necessary moves either genius ones or in desperation)

READY FOR SEASON!!!

It would probably feel cheaper and pay 80+$ or more.

Just me or does the yellow part of the #8 look at least twice as big as it needs to be?

 

Done with buying merch with ads on them.

Now I'd RATHER have knockoffs (no ads)

 

Having said that...Man i wish i was going to be at Kobe retirement jersey game.

Ive been to Magic's, kareems, shaq's, Wilkes and maybe one other (the one where they did the whole minny laker team-Mikan was wheeled out in a wheelchair) and they are emotional both joy and sadness for any fan thats followed team for years.

 

Betting Kobe's speech is a thing of beauty. Be interesting to see who shows up for that?

Will Jim and Mitch be invited?

How many former teammates and opposing players?

MJ?

I'm glad it's not just me.  The yellow is awful, awful!

 

 

The league's decision to switch to Nike should not have meant that you take our gold away.

Nike says purple Jerseys will be worn on Monday

 

Mercifully, the Lakers will be able to don purple beginning Monday against the Clippers. Teams were prohibited from wearing their so-called “Statement” jerseys until after Thanksgiving.

“Everybody’s dying to wear the purple ones,” Maples said. “They’re probably our prettiest uniform.”

They’re also just, well, not gold.

“We’re excited to wear a different color,” Brewer admitted.

They are ready to go, hanging in a corner closet of the equipment room at the Lakers’ El Segundo practice facility.
