The Los Angeles Lakers recently released their beautiful Black Mamba edition jerseys and became an instant success in social media not only because of how it honored Kobe Bryant but also because of their stunning design. Now, it seems like Lakers fans could add another nice thread to their collection.
According to Legion Hoops and multiple reports, the Los Angeles Lakers plan to introduce their throwback blue jersey for the 2021 NBA season, the same they wore during their time in Minneapolis and from time to time since moving to Hollywood 60 years ago:
Needless to say, Lakers fans - and even supporters from other teams - flooded social media to talk about this beautiful jersey, which is expected to be a massive sales success:
Even New Orleans Pelicans guard/forward Josh Hart took it to his Twitter account to address the rumors, claiming that he wanted to wear those threads when he played for the Los Angeles Lakers:
"Dang... I wanted these so badly when I was there lol so cold," Hart tweeted.
Moreover, the Los Angeles Lakers are on the verge of playing in the NBA Finals for the first time in one decade and are highly-favored to tie the Boston Celtics with 17 Larry O'Brien trophies, meaning their jersey sales could skyrocket even further in the offseason.
LeBron James and Anthony Davis fulfilled their promise of taking the Los Angeles Lakers back to the ultimate stage but they still must finish the job vs. a hardnosed Miami Heat team. But even if you're not a Lakers fan, this is the kind of jersey every single basketball fan should have in their closet.
