Bottom line:Almost can’t go wrong with these team colors and tradition. As part of the City Edition series, a Lakers legend serves as the guest designer each year. Cool.
Two years ago, Kobe Bryant came up with a black-and-gold model. Last season, Magic Johnson produced a similarly attractive purple-and-black pinstriped version.
This season, the team's City version reportedly will have a familiar look with the "Lakers" script on a gold jersey.
