The Los Angeles Lakers introduced their Statement Edition jersey for 2022-23. Per the team, the purple and gold jersey “features the phrase ‘Leave A Legacy’ to emphasize the franchise mission towards excellence on and off the court, while the ’17’ on the neck of the jersey symbolizes the 17 Lakers championships.”

The numbers go from gold with white trim to black with gold trim, while black trim replaces the white for the “Lakers” lettering across the chest.
Last month, the Lakers unveiled their Classic Edition jersey that recreates the team’s first-ever home uniform in a nod to the franchise’s journey from the Midwest to the West.

The uniform features the Minneapolis Lakers ‘50s era blue and gold colorway, with “Lakers” spelled out in the original Minneapolis typography. Stitched numbers are featured on the front and back of the jersey in Minneapolis’ ’50s era blue and Nike’s logo from the ’70s and ’80s is back in a modern way.
Featured on the left shoulder is the logo for bibigo, the Official Jersey Patch Partner of the Lakers. Featured on the lower left part of the jersey is Nike’s Classic Edition jock tag and each side of the shorts has the quintessential cutout.
