Unlike the Minnesota Timberwolves, the new Nike jerseys for the Lakers doesn’t look much different in comparison to what the team had with Adidas. There are some subtle changes to the jersey with the collar looking a bit different than in years past, but for the most part, it appears to be the same outside of the Nike swoosh.
Minnesota, however, went in a completely different direction with a new look entirely. The Timberwolves are also one of the teams that have elected to go with a sponsor on their jerseys with Fitbit prominently placed.
As for the Lakers, it doesn’t appear that they’ll be going the sponsor route to bring in more revenue. Of course, that could change in the near future as they have almost certainly been getting their fair share of offers for ad placement on their iconic uniforms.
