The Lakers gave us the teaser trailer recently, and now we’ve gotten the full look. Kobe Bryant is sporting Los Angeles’ new “Hollywood Nights” alternative black uniforms.

The threads are mostly black, but feature accents of the team’s traditional purple and gold colors. The gold really pops as the trim around the purple “Lakers” and numbers on the torso, as well as on the striping down the sides.

It is not always easy to pull off alternate looks on traditional designs, but this is fantastic. You can watch how excited owner Jeannie Buss is over the new black uniforms at the Lakers’ official website.
