The Kobe Bryant era Lakers tried to distance themselves from the Showtime Lakers in a way, using slightly altered jerseys and a slightly altered court at the Staples Center. But with Magic Johnson now running the show in Los Angeles and with LeBron James signed up and good to go, we’re going to get to those glorious Showtime jerseys back. If they stick to just yellow for home games and purple for away games like the good old days, even better. Here is a look at Where when can you buy new LeBron Lakers jersey and more information on the authentic deal.
The Lakers official new uniforms will be available at Modell’s Sporting Goods starting on Monday and, of course, the No. 23 LeBron jerseys are going to go quick. Unlicensed NBA retailers have obviously been selling these pups, but we didn’t know until Wednesday that the Lakers were definitely going with the 1980s throwback uniforms. Modell’s accidentally leaked the swanky jerseys on Twitter for the world to see.
