The Los Angeles Lakers City Edition jerseys are available now, and the NBA is really going all-in on its City Edition push for the 2023-24 season.
Courts have been designed in conjunction with the jerseys – and those will be used during NBA in-season tournament games.
Have you seen the Lakers’ design? Check it out below.
Most of the courts are almost a 1-to-1 reflection of the accompanying City Edition uniforms. In this case, the Lakers opted for their traditional and iconic purple and gold.
Certainly a bold look – and we’ll be interested to see how it looks during a game.
As you can see, there’s a mixture of old and new with these uniforms. In more recent years the team has opted for black to be mixed with the purple and gold, but the logo design is a direct take from the early 1960’s.
NBA City Edition history
Beginning in 2017 Nike and the NBA partnered up to design new uniforms for all league teams. The goal was to design a uniform that not only embraced the history of the franchise, but also incorporated the city each team calls ‘home.’
Fans have loved most of the designs, feeling that it connects to the culture of the city and the die-hards that pack the arena on gameday.
For our money, 2018-19 had the coolest designs as a whole. But there’s something undeniably special about each uniform – especially once the team’s explain the design process and choices.
Obviously it has been a successful project. So successful in fact that we’ve seen MLB do something similar with their ‘City Connect’ uniforms.
When will teams wear their City Edition uniforms?
Teams will wear the new threads multiple times throughout the season, with staggered debuts occurring.
