LeBron James approves of new Lakers jersey designs
LeBron James’ reaction to the unveiling of the new Los Angeles Laker jerseys was clear and simple. He loves them. King James took to Twitter to praise the newly-released jerseys.
The Lakers posted a picture of three classic-looking jerseys to their Twitter account. A white, yellow, and purple jersey—all with James’ No. 23—were on display for the world to see.

Not much changes with the new jerseys. The spelling and numbering look largely unchanged. There are some slight alterations to the bordering and the stripe down the side, but nothing major.
While the jerseys will look relatively similar to that of last year’s squad, the roster will be a totally different story. James is obviously the biggest name joining the squad. But he’s not the only veteran coming to La-La Land.
JaVale McGee, Lance Stephenson, Rajon Rondo, and Michael Beasley are all joining the new-look Lakers as well. This cadre of veterans joins a young roster with a number of promising young stars.
Lonzo Ball is the biggest name of the Laker young bucks. But he’s joined by the insanely long Brandon Ingram as well as the effervescent Kyle Kuzma. Josh Hart is the least heralded of this group, but he made waves in the Las Vegas Summer League. All four players have sky-high potential.
The veterans and neophytes will learn how to play with one another next season and although LeBron James in a Lakers uniform may look odd at first, chances are we will all get used to it.
