The Lakers have gone a few different directions with alternate uniforms in recent years, such as the black version, but when you have a classic brand you shouldn’t mess with it. Same with the Celtics, Bulls, Sixers, and other classic uniforms — if you’re going to go alternate then go older.
The Lakers are doing just that — going back to Minneapolis.
They are breaking out the George Mikan era jerseys, starting on Wednesday vs. Wizards and in four other games later in the season.
I like it.
Now if the Lakers could get George Mikan in the paint it would help.
