Lakers officially unveil black ‘Hollywood Nights’ jersey (PHOTOS)

Sep 18, 2013, 8:01 PM EDT

The Lakers gave us a tease about a month ago of what was officially unveiled on Wednesday: the team’s new black alternate uniforms.

Officially dubbed the “Hollywood Nights” edition, the jerseys feature a black base color with numbers and lettering in purple, outlined with gold trim.

Lakers executive Jeanie Buss can be seen discussing the new uniforms in the video clip above, and here’s some additional detail from the official release.

The organization has consistently heard from fans that a black uniform was desired, and have been working to make that a reality for years. The Lakers have a long history and philosophy of listening to fans, and as a public trust are in the business of serving fan interest, from colors of uniforms up to the ultimate goal of winning championships. The purple and gold uniforms will forever be the staple for the Lakers, with the black ones adding what the Lakers hope to be a cool alternative.

Check out some additional photos below, and make sure to head over to to view the complete gallery.

    this is just out there to confuse all the bandwagon fans when they are trying to buy Miami Heat jerseys. Lakers fans will order custom jerseys with James on the back and kill two birds with one stone.

      Lakers have already been selling these for years, the only difference is they are actually wearing them on the court now.

    I miss when clipper fans were under rocks because of shame. Enjoy being the best team in LA, because outside of that city there are far better teams.

    Don’t like them, not one bit. But sales are sales.

    Major sports have decided the gangsta market is too lucrative not to pander too.

      Black =/= “gangsta”

    • mytthor - Sep 19, 2013 at 10:37 PM

      Nobody under the age of 40 has used the word “gangsta” since 1995.
