Even more oddly, the forum back in the day had Yellow and orange seats. No blue anywhere.

One side of arena was yellow.

Other half orange.

 

Long time fans can remember the outside of the building being a rust color with white pillars. 

Then in the 80's painted a deep blue with white pillars

 

I can remember hanging out after the game across the street at the hollywood park hotel bar until traffic thinned.

Bill Bertka would always come in with a tape of the game, no commercials no time outs. He'd also pass out some stat sheets to folks hanging around and chat a bit.

Really felt like you were a part of the organization

Praying for  1. Some Cohesion (Ill fitting parts with young bucks, new guys, and those playing for next contracts may muck things up all season) 2. Better Coaching, No More Tanking (Last season was more of the latter but not sure how much of the former we can count on. Walton with something to prove this season as much as any Laker player) 3. Rookie Watch (Hoping Lonzo outshines his daddy (ROTY??), and Kuzma finds minutes and makes a push for all rook 2nd team)

READY FOR SEASON!!!

I thought "forum blue" was a name Jack Kent Cooke made up, to use in lieu of calling it "purple".  ?

That's right. Forum Blue is purple.

Probably why to this day my favorite color is that shade purple.

It's more of a "blue" purple than the "red" purple we had before.

 

Someone should do a RGB/Hex comparison of the palette to see how far off it is. Fans need to complain to the Lakers organization that this is simply not acceptable.

The Lakers are aware how [expletive]ed up the jersey colors are and they've taken the issue to Nike.

Nike told them it's the same color used in the early 00's. Which is completely false to anyone with eyes. We're the purple and gold not purple and yellow.

I see blue and black, not white and gold.

I like to dip my feet in toilet water & smell them.

Lakers should refuse to wear the yellow.

 

Go with white or purple or black (are they still using black occasionally? I cant recall seeing it this season)
