NBA glamour team to live up to the tag for the 2013-14 season.
Expect the Los Angeles Lakers to be turning heads this NBA season, after the team launched their new Hollywood Nights design this week.
The slick looking black jersey features the famous Laker purple and gold as a trim, with Kobe Bryant really looking like the Black Mamba in this kit.
“The organisation has consistently heard from fans that a black uniform was desired, and have been working to make that a reality for years,” the team said.
“The Lakers have a long history and philosophy of listening to fans, and as a public trust are in the business of serving fan interest, from colors of uniforms up to the ultimate goal of winning championships.
“The purple and gold uniforms will forever be the staple for the Lakers, with the black ones adding what the Lakers hope to be a cool alternative.
“The Hollywood Nights theme in part acknowledges the celebrities like Jack Nicholson that have long supported the team, but also serves as a nod to the huge number of people that work behind the scenes to make up one of L.A.’s biggest industries.”
Even though the team has doubt this season about how competitive they are going to be, with the departure of Dwight Howard to Houston ad Bryant coming off a serious injury, fanatix beleives the award for best dressed team might already be decided.
