Lakers give sneak peak of new “Hollywood Nights” black uniform

Aug 22, 2013, 4:58 PM EDT

The Lakers have sold black uniforms before but never wore then (I was wrong about that earlier). Now it seems they will come to the court.

The question is: Will these be the uniforms with the sleeves? Hard to picture those sleeves with the traditional unis or the Sunday whites so maybe this is it.

There are a lot of fans that don’t like the sleeves, but they are not going anywhere for a few years. For one, teams think they can sell sleeved jerseys to guys who will not wear tank tops.  We’ll see about that. Second, if you’re going to bring in advertising on jerseys as some owners want, a small patch on the sleeve is less intrusive than many other options.

Either way, we will see some Lakers in black next season.

    How about Hollywood Knits. Knitted on old tendons, patchwork defense, and ugly jerseys like those sweaters your grandma made for you.

    The LA Lakers have never worn black uniforms on the court. Staples center has sold them but there has never been an Official Black Game jersey.
