Lakers unveil new Showtime-inspired jerseys for 2018-19 season

When you sign a King, you need robes worthy of him.

On Tuesday, the Los Angeles Lakers unveiled their new jersey design for the 2018-19 season, inspired by the Showtime-era jerseys of the 90’s. In conjunction with Nike, the Lakers have so far introduced their three classic sets: the gold Icon edition, the purple Statement edition, and the white Association edition.

The Lakers announced the new jerseys with a short video narrated by forward Kyle Kuzma paying homage to the greats: Jerry West, Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant. But it also looks to the future with shots of Kuzma, Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, and Josh Hart surrounding panning views of a gold #23 LeBron James jersey.

The Lakers also showcased their other two jersey sets hyping up any fan with a pulse.

Here’s Kyle Kuzma rocking the Icon edition:

The Lakers have noticeably changed the collar and arm holes from last season with a thin stripe and added a drop shadow to the numbers on the jerseys to mimic the Showtime jerseys. They have also added a black side panel to the purple jerseys, a more unique and modern look compared to their previous designs.

The jerseys will go on sale at the Lakers store at 10 AM on Tuesday.
