NBA: LA Lakers to Wear Short-Sleeved Jerseys in 2013-14

Aug 21 2013, 12:27am CDT | by

The Los Angeles Lakers will sport white short-sleeved jerseys at select games of the 2013-14 NBA season.

The Los Angeles Lakers will wear alternate short-sleeved jerseys in the 2013-14 NBA season. 

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.

ESPN's LA Lakers beat writer Dave McMenamin also broke the news on Twitter on August 21.

"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."

The adizero jerseys will be similar to what the Golden State Warriors wore in 2012-13. The Phoenix Suns are another Western Conference team which will sport the short-sleeved look, per ESPN.  

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.

Lakers point guard Steve Nash has no problem with his team's new look.  

"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."

 

Coincidentally, the Lakers have the second-best uniform designs in the NBA, according to ESPN's 2013 Uni Watch Power Rankings. The Boston Celtics came out on top of the survey.
