The Los Angeles Lakers' makeover isn't being limited to just the names on the roster for next season. After signing free-agent forward LeBron James this summer as well as a host of other household names, the Lakers have changed up their uniform look for 2018-19, too.
According to the team, the new uniforms for next season "bring back an element of the 1980s Showtime Era -- updated numbers, which use a vertical drop shadow -- along with a rounded neckline. The font effect references the Lakers' storied past, while also positioning a fresh direction for the franchise."
The Lakers were one of the busiest teams in free agency this summer, adding James as well as fellow veteran players JaVale McGee, Michael Beasley, Rajon Rondo and Lance Stephenson. That group -- coupled with youngsters Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram and Lonzo Ball -- are expected to help Los Angeles take a big step forward in the Western Conference this season.
