The Los Angeles Lakers aren’t going to be the only basketball team in the city with new uniforms this year as their fellow Staples Center tenants will also be donning some new duds.
The Clippers teased the uniform a week or so ago with an Instagram video, though, outside of the powder blue color, not much could be seen. Now, thanks to Adidas and the Clippers, who released the full uniform today, we have a look at the pretty impressive threads.
I admit – I’m a bit biased with the color combination, though, wish they would have opted for a traditional jersey instead of the ‘t-shirt’ style.
The uniforms are part of the NBA’s ‘Pride Uniform’ collection and pay homage to the San Diego roots.
"Designed by adidas, the uniforms are inspired by heritage of the Clippers organization and the Nautical culture of the southern California area. The “Back in Blue” uniform features light blue color for the first time since the team was based in San Diego. Light blue has a rich history with the organization and has been a part of the team’s identity since they were the Buffalo Braves in the 1970’s. The lightweight woven shorts feature three iconic nautical flags to represent each of the team’s letters – L-A-C- to stand for Los Angeles Clippers."
Los Angeles will wear them during every Sunday home game.
