It remains to be seen how the Lakers will look on the basketball court this season. But whether they overachieve or continue the path toward mediocrity, the Lakers will at least look good in their uniforms. The Lakers will don a new black alternative uniform for certain games this season, as shown via Instagram on the Lakers’ Twitter account.

The black uniform, dubbed “Hollywood Nights” features a black jersey and the Lakers’ traditional purple and gold as trimming. As previously reported, the Lakers will also wear white short-sleeve jerseys at select games during the 2013-14 season. One of those games is expected to be the Lakers’ Christmas Day game against the Miami Heat.
