Chris Creamer of SportsLogos.net, said the Lakers will reveal a new uniform ahead of the 2018-19 season. And he said it might pay homage to the historic Magic Johnson, Pat Riley and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar days.
The Lakers played the Detroit Pistons to open the day’s action in Las Vegas.
LeBron James made it official and signed his $153 million dollar Los Angeles Lakers contract, along with Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka by his side, according to the Bleacher Report.
Just a few weeks after Magic Johnson courted James with a late-night meeting to convince him to come to the Western Conference team, Johnson, the president of basketball operations, tweeted out a heartfelt message about the star player signing on.
“Today is a great day for the Lakers organization and Lakers fans all over the world to welcome LeBron James, a three-time NBA Champion and four-time NBA MVP. LeBron is special. He is the best player in the world. He loves to compete and is an awesome leader who is about winning and making sure that his teammates are successful. The Lakers players are excited to have a teammate who has been to nine NBA Finals. It’s a huge step closer to returning the Lakers to the playoffs and to the NBA Finals.”
James joins teammates Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.
The former Cleveland Cavaliers star repped a pair of Just Don Lakers shorts with the web store’s signature design of having the logo strewn across the front.
