Last week the first look at new Lakers uniforms leaked, indicating that a return to the old Showtime look of the 80s would be coming this season.  

Today, Nike and the Lakers made the change official, announcing the return with a video linking the past and present, from Magic to LeBron.  

 The Lakers did get to unveil the purple and white uniforms for the first time.  

I’m sure these will be flying off the shelves. It’s been a long time since the Lakers were the talk of the NBA. Lakers Celtics finals would be ideal, but it’s not happening anytime soon. The Warriors are still King.
