The team will wear a jersey design by Nike that features the word “Lakers” and the word in bold letters across the front of the jersey.
Nike is the official jersey sponsor for the Los Angeles Clippers, Los Angeles Chargers and the Los Alamos National Laboratory, and the logo is also used on Nike jerseys.
Los Angles Lakers President, Scott Silverstein, announced the new look during a press conference Friday, Feb 13, 2020.
“We are excited to introduce a brand-new look for our players,” Silverstein said.
“The Lakers will once again be wearing a fresh, fun, and stylish look that combines the best elements of their iconic colors, with the latest in performance technology.”
Silverstein added that the Lakers will also be wearing the signature Laker cap with the logo at center court during the game.
The logo was created by Nike and has been on the jerseys of the Clippers, Chargers and Los Alamus National Laboratory since the start of the 2020-21 season.
Lakers President Scott Silversteins team will not be wearing anything from their existing jersey designs, but will be adding new jerseys and apparel in the coming months.
Silverstein said that the team is not going to change the way they dress, but they will be going through their “own process” of designing a new look.
The Lakers are expected to wear their jerseys for the first time in a Lakers uniform, with no changes in any other part of their uniform.
The Lakers last played a home game in 2020-11, and they played just once in the postseason during the regular season.
The team is set to play their next game on Feb. 18 against the Portland Trail Blazers.
