The South Bay Lakers today unveiled their jerseys to be worn during the 2017-18 season. South Bay, like the Los Angeles Lakers, will have the Wish logo displayed prominently on the front of the jersey as part of a multi-year partnership with the California based e-commerce platform.
The new Nike NBA G League uniforms were created with special attention to the athletes’ performance while also paying tribute to the NBA parent teams. The most significant design advancements are to the scapula line of the jerseys where Nike designers altered the construction for a vastly improved fit while the hemlines on the bottom of the shorts were also modified to allow for a greater range of motion.
The jerseys include the addition of the NBA G League logo on the left chest, back neckline and the right hip of the shorts. Team-colored neck trim and side inserts that highlight the unique identities of each G League team were also an important addition to the new threads. The South Bay Lakers uniforms will incorporate Lakers Gold, Lakers Purple and South Bay Blue in their uniform set.
The South Bay jerseys incorporate the same player name and number fonts as the Los Angeles Lakers. The Los Angeles Lakers logo will also be prominently featured on the left side of the shorts, while the South Bay Lakers primary logo will be on the right side.
The jerseys will first be worn during the opening game of the 2017-18 season when the Lakers travel to take on the Santa Cruz Warriors on Saturday, November 4 at 7:00 PM.
NBA G League replica jerseys will go on sale in November on www.NBAGLeagueStore.com for $70.
