It’s official! The Lakers will be wearing new jerseys for the 2018-19 season. The jersey change comes along with the addition of their new all-star player Lebron James.
A photo of the new Lebron James Lakers jersey leaked online and went viral. Someone managed to take a picture of the jerseys for sale in a store that wasn’t supposed to sell them until July 30th.

The NBA contacted the store selling the jerseys and told them to take them off the shelves immediately. But unfortunately, it was too late and the picture leaked online.
Their new jersey design is reminiscent of the design that the “Showtime” Lakers wore back in the 1980s.

It is without a doubt that Lebron James has a chance to have the best selling lakers jersey of all time. Fans are already in approval of the design change and it’s only a matter of time before they go on sale.
We will definitely be purchasing a Lebron James Lakers jersey the moment they become available. Keep an eye out on our website because we may just end up giving some away in the near future!
