What if Tommy Hilfiger designed the Lakers uniform?

Lakers-hilfiger_450

In the latest style issue of ESPN The Magazine, Tommy Hilfiger was asked to come up with new looks for professional sports uniforms.

Hilfiger drew on his brand's nautical inspirations to come up with a version of an NBA uniform for the Lakers. He also redesigned uniforms for the New York Yankees, Dallas Cowboys and Montreal Canadiens. Each uniform looks more old-school fashion than futuristic frock.

"I've always come from a fundamental mind-set of mixing fashion with function," Hilfiger told the magazine. "It's important to create a design that both represents a team and has a lasting impression."

Here is how Hilfiger explained the concept for the Lakers uniform:

"The influence for this design came from reaching deep into the heritage of our brand, and our love of sailing. We love the authentic signal flags that sailors use to communicate with each other on the sea, and the one we liked the best we infused into the uniform. Regarding the length of the shorts, we looked back in history to what Kareem and Bird wore and thought, 'Could we ever get the players to accept this again?' In the end we felt no, but I wanted to go just above the knee for a cleaner, more modern look."

What do you think of the Lakers uniform that Hilfiger designed?

History repeats to the same patterns, but evolving from them to a more perfected reality, round after
round. So we are the same: just better than last time. And we are getting better with every step more
we take within the future. It's a great life to be a Lakers Fan. Sorry others: you just can't compete.

Phil knows he's got a Ferrari this year. He's just got it purring along. Trying a few things in 2nd & 3rd
gear. Knows he's got several more gears, but sees no need to even try them now. Hasn't even floored
it yet when the NBA cops aren't looking, but knows he can lay a patch of smoke & rubber a block
long if he ever needs it. But yeah, Sonny Belfast, Phil knows (and YOU know) he may not even need
to floor it this year at all. But just for the heck of it, I think he will. @CORNERJ
*_____________________________________________________________________*
In my mind's eye, the Lakers and Celtics are rushing towards each other in the fashion that they have
in years past. Matching each other, blow-for-blow, against all-comers until the time to meet arrives.
They are looking squarely in the others direction while they simultaneously brush aside any with the
misguided notion that they are contenders. It is the same as how Bruce Lee will casually vanquish all
OF the Big Boss' henchmen on his way to the real dance. It is about Boston. It has always been about
Boston. Boston is the only franchise that has earned our RESPECT...and our DERISION. @ FEARLESS

Kobe can win THROUGH his team mates. He can win WITH his team mates. He can win
DEFERRING to his team mates. He can win IN SPITE OF his team mates. He can win INSTEAD
of his team mates. He can even win BY HIMSELF (just ask Dallas & Toronto). Champions are
forged in the 4th QUARTER. Franchises are defined in the 4th QUARTER. Dynasties are cemented
in the 4th QUARTER. Sit back & watch PJ, Kobe & Fish orchestrate this symphony we call Lakers
basketball to another parade down Figueroa Blvd.@ FEARLESS

*________________________GAME DAY PRAYER __________________________*
Many of you have made requests for a game day prayer. Your wish is my command. As I do not
want to offend anyone of certain faiths, I have included several divine beings from the skies above.
.
LET US PRAY
.
Dear God, Jesus, Allah, Vishnu, Zeus, The Golden Calf, Buddha, The Alien Greys, The Reptilians, & Sam Cassell, We ask that you use your divine powers to grant us, not world peace, not the end of world hunger, not even the destruction of the TV show, Jersey Shore. We ask only for a Laker victory. We know you don't concern yourself with resolving such petty issues as world peace and poverty, as these problems have existed for thousands of years, and have yet to be resolved. We do know that you care about the Lakers, as you have blessed them like no other, and have have granted them back to back titles. We pray for another Laker victory tonight for your favorite team. You may hear similar prayers coming out of Dallas for a Maverick victory, but I beg of you, oh divine one, ignore their silly prayers, and listen only to ours. We thank you in advance. Can I get an AMEN?
.

The uniform was crap...

Don't like them at all.

@Mamba24.........agreed!! Hope we don't wear our Los Lakers whites tonite with ugly black shoes. Now let's get back to GAME DAY BABEEEY!!!! No stopping us tonite when we play a game that really means something!! My husband and I will be going to the Laker/MN game on the 18th in LA!! Last time we went Rudy was coach, so am excited to see PJ in his final year. So sad, I wish he would come back!

you need a designer for that?

What do you think of the Lakers uniform that Hilfiger designed?

I just read mike article about kobe's post game shooting. People will say that is kobe desire to win. But it was a selfish display and it frustrated the Zen Master to no end. Kobe doesn't practice with the team. Shouldn't he have used that energy to participate in practices to improve the team. But he still thinks it is all about him and his teammates are just bit players. I am sure phil will write another tell all book about kobe when this season is over. I'm a laker fan from 1982 but this is new to me. It has always been a magic who was unselfish who made his team better. Then there was the nick van exel, eddie jones, ceballos etc era who embodied teamwork. Then it was shaq and kobe era, Both egomaniacs but they offset each other. Now there is only kobe who sometimes worry more about personal accolades than team success.Facilitator kobe is much better than selfish kobe. When kobe involve his team it's a joy to watch. The team demonstrates it is the league best. But when it is ball hog kobe he either gets 2 or 0 assists and the team looks pathetic. Plus he will shoot 9 for 26.

talk about making a mountain out of a mole hill. if i was a lakers fan, my jaw would drop and i would be quite impressed by kobe's dedication. yet instead, here's another example of someone complaining about a superstar who has been a big part of 15 championship. i'm glad i'm a bulls fan.

d-rose mvp! go bulls!

Good Morning NewMexicoLL. Should be a good game tonight and of course we will prevail. Wear whites? No,No, No!! LOL! So you're going to the Minny game with your Hubby...Get down with your bad self NMLL!!! I hope you & Hubby take that Laker Swagger with you and Represent!!!
.
@Adrian...Yes I think you covered it pretty well sir!! LMAO!! How's the baby?
.
@Sean, What? Sean does not like them either? I am detecting a disturbing trend here Lakerholics!!

From rotoworld:

There is a "significant push" with the Timberwolves' organization to replace head coach Kurt Rambis, though no decision will be made until after the season.Bucks assistant Kelvin Sampson is among the favorites to replace Rambis, if he is indeed replaced this summer, as the Wolves want a more energetic and engaged coach to police their young team. The Wolves have gone 31-117 since Rambis took over.

Stop that Yello! Stop it now!! Besides I hate to be the bearer of bad news but, I guarantee you if Rambis was to be fired, he would be the front runner to take Phils place. Still want him fired Yello? LOL!!!!!!!

Those uniforms aren't bad....but no. I just read that Kurt Rambis is probably going to be fired after this year. I would love to see the Lakers hire him as Phil's succesor, he will keep the triangle in tact. I know this was a topic in a previous thread, and I know he hasn't exactly set the world on fire in MIN...but it just seems like a fit, ya' know?

I can hardly wait to see the NBA in Euro Cut shorts...LOL

Good Morning Laker Nation,

@Dan - no thanks on the Hilfiger designed unis...

@Mamba - Thanks for the roll call. Let's do this!

@fever - I saw that about Rambis as well. It's not surprising since KLove isn't a big fan of Rambis. Hmmm...will the Lakers consider him? I still prefer BShaw.

Still want him fired Yello? LOL!!!!!!!

top of the mornin mamba!! well i dont suppose it can get much worse than having luke on your team.. HAHA.. besides if kobe can win with luke than i'm sure kobe can win with kurt!!!

The Mavs are feeling confident with how they matchup with the Lakers. I agree that they matchup with the Lakers better than SA. Chandler makes them much better defensively.

excerpt...

“I feel like we stack up well,’’ Chandler said. “We’re different (than the Lakers’ big men) and we’re different with our approach. “Especially our ‘Dirty’ (Nowitzki). I think he poses a big threat, but I like our matchup.’’

Stop this I say! LMAO!!! And welcome to Lakers Nation!

Posted by: LRob | March 12, 2011 at 08:24 AM

i'm sure he was the frontrunner before but i seriously doubt he'll be one of the candidates NOW after his brief minny stint.

MANTRA FOR REST OF THE SEASON FROM THE ZEN MASTER:

"I like to see everybody involved in the game," Jackson said. "I've tried to preach as a basketball coach, even though we have a guy that dominates the ball in Kobe, basketball is not a one on one game — it's a team game."


Good Morning LRob! So the Mavericks are feeling confident huh? let's see how confident they feel after reviewing this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iJNoFs3G91A - Kobe 62 pts dallas 61

So Dallas is confident? Lets see how confident Dirk is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RV2aUcg_bl0&feature=related

Tommy Hilfiger' vision and uniform is another kind of distraction. Stick to what works in the Lakers winning tradition i.e the purple and gold uniforms. Other business ventures should be entertained in the off-season, not when our players are competing for three-peat. I say shun those white uniforms, those Los Lakers, those original blue uniforms from MN, they are all for commercial endeavor to savor and exploit passion of fans. In short, they want your hard earned money Frankly speaking, uniforms have no bearing on their game. If they played naked and distracted the other team and their fans, win the game because of naked strategy I think that uniform is better. LMAO!

Dude...this post is so SPOT on, it's all about KOBE, and that's the problem that so many fans see. That Smokin Glass and mirrows don't work on everyone, just the one's with the P&G glasses on. Dude is a great talent, but he's PLASTIC and PHONEY. But after all is said and done, he'll be listed in the books as one of the BEST players EVER.

i hope your iTunes is filled with hours of hours of General's voice spreading commands and directives. your are lucky the Nyets tickets are cheap so you can listen to Him and Sasha live, for the rest of your life. and soon they will move in your hood. you can attend the practice too. :-)

does the Little General's voice and enthusiasm inspires you for the daily roll call? (while inserting double pairs of ear plugs in each of my ears)

"Why is no one talking about Gasol's nonexistent D? He should be ashamed the way he manned the paint on D last night. I'm getting tired of hearing more screams than roars from this man. Gasol might be the Laker who spends the most time on the floor, and by that I mean, on the ground.

There have been many comments on the disappointing defensive effort of Pau Gasol in the Miami game. When Lakers fans finally accept the fact that Pau frequently mails-it-in during the regular season we can move on to more important things........

The tandom of Gasol with Bynum just doesn't work well to which I rather have a Gasol/Odom tandom or a Bynum/Odom tandom in the works..

_________

In the Miami game, PJ had a lineup of Bynum, Odom, Barnes, Blake, and Brown on the floor, and it was horrendous. Nothing on the offensive end and Lebron just schooled Barnes left and right.

Preach RS Police, PREACH!!!!!!!

Mount Up Fellas….The Lakers get the opponents best punch and rowdiest crowd every game.


“It’s the defending champs coming in your building, so it’s a big deal,” coach Rick Carlisle told the Mavericks’ official website. “To try and downplay it wouldn’t be being honest. It’s an important game.”

Game Day Baby!

I like the angry Mamba. I hope that Dallas gets a big doss of it tonight. If Mamba wants to work on his shot, then that is what should happen.

I was waiting for the game where Pau and Drew would let up. I wasn't thinking it would be against the Heat. I have always said that Drew and Pau are a little too nice. I love their game and they seem like great people, but they don't have the assassin mentality that we see every game in Kobe.

Our bench sucks. The "Killed B's" or whatever you want to call them REALLY suck on the road. I am not blaming Mitch. It looked good on paper. I guess I wish he had seen the writing on the wall, listened to Magic, and made a trade. If nothing else, to shake things up. I hope they can put something together tonight because Dallas has a really great bench.

It is tough to be the Kobester. If you pass and the other guy misses everyone is like, "Why didn't you shoot!" If you shoot and miss, everyone is like, "Why didn't you pass?" Today, everyone will be like, "Rest him PJ, the damage is done!"

PS: Please, just say no to Tommy! Nautical? LMAO!

Go Lakers!

I am a Lakerholic.

OH DEAR GOD!!! ROTFLMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Agency Findings

By extrapolating Steve Blake's career totals to this season

This agency has concluded that Steve Blake is not missing but actually putting up comparable numbers in relation to minutes played.
The only question is which executive in the Laker organization actually thought this was a good signing?
A career 40% shooter who is shooting an abysmal 36% this year. Management should be reprimanded for failing to realize this simple fact:
Obscure opposing players readily have all-star performances against the Lakers and should not be used as a barometer of their true basketball talents.

CASE CLOSED

Good one RSP

Hi Mamba24 thanks for the roll call.My baby,she's 6 months now she's fine my friend...

>>>Dude...this post is so SPOT on, it's all about KOBE, and that's the problem
>>>that so many fans see. That Smokin Glass and mirrows don't work on
>>>everyone, just the one's with the P&G glasses on. Dude is a great talent, but
>>>he's PLASTIC and PHONEY

Hey look everyone... KL Beast is back.

Now remind us again how no free agent in the world will EVER sign with the Lakers because they don't want to play with Kobe...

Oh yeah, that's right - except for Derek Fisher, Ron Artest, Shannon Brown, Steve Blake, and Lamar Odom. All of whom specifically cited playing with Kobe as a reason they chose to sign with the team.

The plastic and phony one is you. Regardless of whatever Kobe does, you will criticize it (just like KL Beast, who I assume you're not, but you act just like).

If Kobe donated 20 million dollars to your favorite charity (which is probably you), you'd find a way to insult him about it.

If Kobe got 20 assists in a game, you'd criticize him for not shooting enough.

If Kobe single handedly won a game on a night when the rest of the team was shooting poorly by scoring 81 points, you'd call him a ball hog and say he should have passed it to Kwame more often.

If Kobe found a cure for cancer or captured Osama Bin Laden or paid off the national debt, you'd call him an egotistical glory hog.

You're a Kobe hater. We get it.

Uniforms should be red, white, and green

SWEET JESUS!!! Preach Reverend LongTimeLakerFan, PREACH!!!!!!!

Oh, by the way... I would like to point out a few things for the Farmar haters...

He now has more starts with New Jersey than in his entire career with the Lakers.

In last night's game, starting in place of the injured Deron Williams, he scored 24 points, got 7 assists, and 3 steals.

So far, they're 2-0 on this run with Williams injured. Granted, it's against Golden State and the Clippers, but that's the same Clippers team that just came off a 4 game winning streak where they beat the Nuggets and the Celtics and the same Golden State team that beat Orlando last night.

So basically, Farmar has had more chances to start in 3/4 of a season with New Jersey (7 games) than he got playing in 4 seasons with the Lakers. And he's done pretty well in the role. I doubt he'll get many chances to start behind DWill, but so far it beats starting behind Iron Man Fisher.

To be fair, his shooting % does suck pretty hard this season. I bet he misses playing with guys like Kobe and Pau who draw attention away from him and leave him more wide open.

Amen brotha!!

THOSE LOOK LIKE OLD DENVER NUGGETS UNIFORMS...

Regarding the way players wear their shorts nowadays, I've got to think it won't change anytime soon due to all the protective gear players are wearing to protect their thighs and knees. Most players are wearing heavy thigh pads to protect them from deep thigh bruises. Those pads won't fit under skimpy shorts.

I wouldn't be surprised to see some T-shirt styled jerseys emerging as well because of the physicality of today's game. I predict that in a few years, players will be wearing small shoulder pads to protect themselves. T-shirt styled jerseys would cover the shoulder pads. Sound far-fetched? Look at the under jersey shirts, that are designed to protect the ribs and sternum, that players wear now.

Hilfiger used to have that huge store in bev hills...he used to say he didn't mind if people stole his clothes, outa the stores, outa trucks, etc.....as long as he had his product out being worn...an interesting business philosophy....
