The Los Angeles Lakers will have a new star player during the 2018-19 NBA season, but they will also be sporting a fresh new look. The Lakers are set to wear new uniforms during the upcoming season and, as always seems to be the case, they have already been leaked online.
If the leaks are accurate, it looks like Los Angeles will be giving us a blast from the past by going back to the old school “Showtime Lakers” look.
The first images of the uniforms accidentally leaked on the Lakers’ Facebook page.

We then got a better look at the uniforms thanks to a leak from Shoe Palace.

The new jerseys will officially be unveiled later today, July 31.
With LeBron James set to join a cast of promising young stars and the Lakers hoping to return to relevance in the NBA and Western Conference, it is the perfect time to go back into the franchise’s deep history. Who knows, perhaps the throwback look could inspire the young players enough to return to Lakers to glory.
The fans can only hope.
One thing is for certain, though. There is a new buzz around Los Angeles with LeBron finally joining the roster and it’s going to be exciting to see just how much improvement the team can make with the league’s best player leading the way on the court.
