Fans have been asking for the black jerseys for years and Executive Vice President of Business Operations Jeanie Buss has finally answered.

“The organization has consistently heard from fans that a black uniform was desired, and have been working to make that a reality for years,” said the Lakers on their official website.

“The Lakers have a long history and philosophy of listening to fans, and as a public trust are in the business of serving fan interest, from colors of uniforms up to the ultimate goal of winning championships. The purple and gold uniforms will forever be the staple for the Lakers, with the black ones adding what the Lakers hope to be a cool alternative.”

The Hollywood Nights theme will acknowledge celebrities such as Jack Nicholson, Leonardo DiCaprio and Flee from the Red Hot Chili Peppers who have supported the team for many years.
