This development was revealed by InsideSoCal.com's Mark Medina, who says the jerseys will be colored white and will be worn at select games. They will be designed by Adidas and will be 26 percent lighter than the traditional NBA jersey.
"The Lakers will wear short-sleeve jerseys next season, according to a team source. LAL's will be white and they'll wear them 'several' games."
ESPN's Darren Rovell reported two months ago that as many as five NBA teams will wear the short-sleeved jerseys next season. These will be brandished at an estimated 12 games.
"It's not one of those things I'm going to lose any sleep over. Basically, we're an entertainment industry. So, you know, you got to make products that people can wear. Things are going to continually change."
