The Los Angeles Lakers’ rookies were apparently busy trying on their new jerseys Thursday, with Josh Hart leaking the first look at what appear to be the Lakers’ “Icon Edition” jerseys.
It seems Panini was hosting a photoshoot with the 2017 rookie class for their next round of cards, and the company gave us our first glimpse at Lonzo Ball wearing the Lakers’ purple and gold.
Behold, Lonzo the Laker (and an assortment of other rookies):

The Lakers haven’t officially unveiled their new threads yet, but more teams are sharing the new Nike looks by the day. It seems like it’s only a matter of time until we get our first real look at the first set of uniforms.
Overall, it’s not a huge departure from what the Lakers were already wearing. The biggest differences are on the collar shape, bottom of the neck design and cut of the arm holes. Expectations should be the same level of change to their “Association Editions” of the home gold uniforms.
Two additional uniforms, dubbed “Athlete’s Mindset” and “Inspired by the Community,” have yet to be teased for any team.
