I always thought that if we got Lebron it would begin a new era for the Lakers which would also mean new jerseys. It's looking like that's a possibility with rumors surfacing that Nike is working to unveil a new design. The showtime era jerseys have always been my favorite, this is a nice redesign of those. What do you guys think?

NOT THE ACTUAL DESIGN, JUST A FAN CONCEPT:

The jerseys were being re-designed way before LBJ signed. Redesign of NBA logos and jerseys etc can take up to 3 years to complete. It's not something you knock up in Photoshop and have them done in 3 weeks.

All the products are most likely being manufactured/shipped as I type this.

Please go back to the old school font - I’ve screaming this for years

I'm not so sure about 3 years, my guess would be about a fiscal quarter so 3 months. Nike signed a deal with the NBA in June of 2015 and their jersey apparel went into effect for the 2017-2018 season, they have designed well over 100 jerseys for all the NBA teams since. I think you're under-estimating the ability of a corporation like Nike, a company of that size would most likely have no issues completing a deliverable like this considering the massive scale of their design teams, supply-chain, and manufacturing.

Turns out it's not even a rumor haha, check out the NBA store.

FOX Sports: "Can you start by giving us some background on the uniform change, logistically? How is that all going to take place?"

Lisa Piken Koper: "There’s two sides. There’s the actual outfitting and the development of the product for the players, which we’ve been working with Nike for a year already on what that looks like. Everything from the teams getting to see what the new identities will be (if there are new identities), from what the updated uniforms look like, when they are sort of switched into the Nike template from the adidas template. So that whole process has happened over the last year.

"And then Nike has gone to retail and gone out to the market really in January, February and March, selling in what the new product will look like. Gearing up for our global launch, which will be 10/1, 2017.

Obviously changing a jersey can be a lot faster but after the trademarks and licensing agreements are finalised, the product needs to be manufactured and approved and then shipped.

I just love the OG MPLS jerseys. Those are sick. They are always sold out. The suckers cancelled my BI Jersey last season when I did a pre-sale. Lol.

My favorite is the All star Magic Johnson jersey. The same one worn by Josh Hart during one of the post game interviews at Vegas/ summer league. I was lucky to get my size and it was sold out few mins after I bought it. Lol.

Here are couple of stock pics:

I personally think it looks cool except the back, why in the hell is the name on the back just a solid black font?

EDIT: Looking more closely it kind of looks purple idk lol

Chick Hears is rolling over in his grave. I can just hear him say that the Lakers take the floor in their "Purple and Banana Yellow Jerseys." And instead of " the mustard is off the hotdog" it will be "Lonzo chases the crossover, oops, he slipped on the Banana Peel."

WOW, Nike royally f*cked up the away jerseys. That black stripe on the side is hideous.

I don’t mind the colors too much. I just always thought the previous jersey designs were better overall. Timeless beautiful design. If there was any uniform in the league that was “perfect”, I thought it was ours.

I already ordered my Gold swingman icon edition #23 jersey last week. Preorder with 25% off coupon applied.

Btw in case you weren’t aware, you can still get the 25% off, if you order now. Enter code SWOOSH. Deal ends in about 3 hours.

I was hoping they did the numbers exactly like the showtime jerseys but they'll do. The purple jerseys with the black stripe on the side look like New York Knick jerseys to me...

I scored an mpls jersey on EBay recently. The one they wore last season, it’s sold out everywhere. I had to settle for #30 Randle’s Jersey..LOL. I can’t find Ingram/Ball/Kuz Jersey anywhere.

Huh you're right, I almost forgot about those. I suppose it lends some form of justification for adding a random black bar on each side of the jersey lol. I still hate it though haha.
