Lakers tease new ‘Hollywood Nights’ alternate black uniforms for 2013

Yes, life in Hollywood is generally enjoyed under the bright lights of the public gaze, but when midnight rolls around it’s time to go black.

Just ask the Los Angeles Lakers.

The franchise teased a set of new black alternate uniforms on Thursday that look like they’re going to be fantastic. Yellow trim outlines both the numbers and the Lakers script above, and the purple helps it all retain that distinctive Lake-show branding.

This is the second big innovation the team has announced recently. It will also be wearing short-sleeved white jerseys at various points throughout the 2013-14 season.

Here’s a photoshop job (via @Serra_db) that will give you a taste of what black jerseys look like on the Lakers:

    I think black uniforms are uglier than ugly unless black is part of the official team colors, it shouldn’t be used. It’s a waste of team money to buy uniforms in colors other than the team colors.
