Los Angeles Lakers unveil new Nike jerseys

Share

The NBA season is on the horizon, just over two months away.

The Lakers stuck with their traditional purple, gold and Sunday white uniforms with slight modifications from the new designers.

The apparel giant's patented swoosh is placed on the right side and featured at its opposite is the logo of Infor - the Nets' jersey ad sponsor. Next season will be the first National Basketball Association season with on-jersey advertisements, and once again, a big brand will be in charge of the jerseys.

By now, you've probably heard that the NBA's jerseys for the 2017-18 season are in for some major changes.

However, it seems that the#Miami Heat will not be making any changes to their jerseys.

While many teams have taken the new partnership with Nike as an opportunity to reboot their uniforms, the Heat's commitment to tradition makes it clear that the franchise is operating under the mentality that if it's not broken, don't fix it. However, Heat rookie Bam Adebayo posted a screenshot of himself in "NBA 2K18" and he wore a Nike Heat jersey that looked nearly identical to the jerseys the team wore last season. There will be four different jerseys for each team, with the other two editions to be revealed in the fall.

The first is against the Oklahoma City Thunder, the second versus the Miami Heat.

At the end of the day, it's about who is wearing the jersey-not the jersey itself. There wasn't much difference from the uniforms the Mavericks have worn in recent years.
