A new era of Lakers basketball is officially underway in Los Angeles! On Saturday, the New Orleans Pelicans and Lakers finalized the trade that will send six-time All-Star Anthony Davis to L.A., where he will have the opportunity to compete for a championship with 15-time All-Star, four-time league MVP and three-time NBA champion LeBron James.
While losing Kawhi Leonard to the LA Clippers stung for Lakers fans, it hurts a little less knowing that two MVP-caliber players will be taking the court in the purple and gold at Staples Center next season. Add that to the fact that the team just signed Danny Green, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and JaVale McGee to round out the supporting cast that already features Kyle Kuzma, and there are plenty of reasons to be excited about the season ahead.
The first Anthony Davis Lakers Nike jersey has dropped!
Yes, it’s really happening! Here’s where you can order one and get your new Lakers jersey.
Note: Since this is a special event item, the AD jersey will ship within 4-6 weeks after Davis has officially signed his contract and his number 23 has been assigned by the league. This post will be updated once his new number is live online.
