Lakers reveal updated Nike unis.
The Los Angeles Lakers unveiled their 2017-18 "Association" and "Icon" Nike uniforms today, as well as a third "Lake Show" option.
The Lakers have chosen the white uniform to be their "Association" edition, while the classic gold will serve as the team's "Icon" kit and the purple "Lake Show" as their "Statement" edition.
With the exception of the Nike swoosh, each of the Lakers iconic uniforms look just as you'd expect.
Per the press release,
"The most noticeable update to the Lakers’ uniforms is how thin they appear."
"In preparation for its role as the NBA’s uniform provider, Nike’s research included creating 3D-body maps of players, which led to finding ways to better tailor the kits’ weight, fit and construction."
"The shoulder seam has been redesigned to allow players a full range of motion at the scapula. Similarly, modifications to the hemlines at the bottom of the jersey and shorts also increase the players’ range of motion."
All 30 NBA teams will have four primary uniforms next season, including the "Association" and "Icon" editions, as well as one inspired by the mindset of the NBA athlete, and another representing the communities that support their teams.
Unlike previous seasons, home teams will not be obligated to wear their white "Association" jerseys for home games.
