Adidas recently made headlines by announcing their “adizero NBA short sleeve uniform system” that the Golden State Warriors will wear during three home games throughout the rest of this season. Here’s what was said in the press release,
Adidas, the uniform-provider of the NBA, says the jerseys feature “the first-ever super lightweight stretch woven short with maximum ventilation for player comfort. The jersey includes armhole insets with 360-degree stretch fabric that facilitates free range of motion for the arms and shoulders.”

At first the jersey looks like nothing more than a compression shirt that has a V-Neck to it. It looks cool when worn and it is an improvement of Dwight’s jersey from the dunk contest a few years ago.
The Warriors owners immediately fell in love with the idea and jumped on it via this article by Marcus Thompson II at the Mercury News. In the article Adidas described the “uniform system”,
“The uniforms are 26 percent lighter than their traditional counterparts, which Adidas said its research revealed was most important to players. They come with the ever-popular moisture-absorbing feature. The sleeves are made with stretch fabric that wraps 360 degrees around the shoulder to ensure full range of motion, because anyone who has played basketball knows how a T-shirt’s sleeve can interfere with a jumper.”
At the end of the press release is this paragraph,
Adidas hopes to unveil similar short-sleeve jerseys for other NBA teams next season.
What do you think about these new short sleeve jerseys? Are they an idea that the Lakers need to look into? Sound off below!

In a very interesting take by Lakers beat writer Kevin Ding of the Orange County Register, the problem that continues to plague the Los Angeles Lakers is Dwight Howard. During [...]
Dwight Howard and Kobe Bryant were elected starters for Sunday night's NBA All-Star game in Houston.
Despite playing through a torn labrum in his right shoulder, Howard said Monday that he expects to play.
"If I re-aggravate my shoulder in these next two games, I'll probably just play a couple of minutes and sit the rest out," Howard said.
Coach Mike D'Antoni...
Dwight Howard has some type of inherent flaw. I won’t pretend to be an avid NBA fan. When the big games are on, I watch and enjoy. I soak in a player’s greatness and watch him flourish. During the playoffs, I make a conscious effort to catch the contests at hand. I don’t dislike the [...]The post Dwight Howard’s Inherent Flaws Prove Troublesome appeared first on The Sports Fan Journal.
Kobe Bryant replied to a Twitter user yesterday who used the term 'gay' as a put down.
Just letting you know@PacSmoove @pookeo9 that using "your gay" as a way to put someone down ain't ok!...

The Lakers are falling apart and at the center of that is Dwight Howard. Doesn’t matter if it is Kobe, D’Antoni, Nash or Earl Clark no one seems to like Dwight and they question his effort.
With that being said, Kobe blames the media for it blowing up.
Bryant told the media before the Lakers practice on Monday that, ”I didn’t say anything wrong. I didn’t say anything to...
Pau Gasol confirmed he will not have surgery on the torn plantar fascia in his right foot.
The Los Angeles Lakers are arguably one of the most elite franchises in professional sports. With 16 NBA Championships dating back to their days in Minneapolis, the Lakers have had a wealth of talented stars that have dazzled the hardwood and helped make the NBA what it is today. Here are the Top five Lakers of all-time.

Games on Lakers’ Schedule this week: Phoenix Suns (17-35), Los Angeles Clippers (36-17)
The most important game this week for the Lakers is against the Phoenix Suns. Yes, the Suns.
The Lakers have returned home from their longest road trip of the season. Although they ended the trip at 4-3 and lost Pau Gasol along the way, the Lakers have been playing much better as of late.
I guess since the Los Angeles Lakers’ season has become sort of a joke, it might be time to just embrace the humor. Last night the Lakers did just that, letting Will Ferrell stand in as an usher during the game against the Phoenix Suns.
Actually, I cannot say for sure that the Lakers let him do this, or if Will just decided he would put on the uniform and stand there and since...
Say what you want about actor/comedian Will Ferrell – he’s washed up, past his prime, a shell of his former self, he should have stopped after Anchorman, he should take a few years off to come up with a new project that would totally wow us, The Campaign was awful, he yells too much, the only people happy about Anchorman 2 are aging frat boys* in need of fresh happy hour material...
The Lakers (24-28) return home after finishing a 4-3 effort in their longest road trip of the season. That road trip started in a shocking 92-86 loss to the Phoenix Suns (17-35), a team that was and still at the bottom of the Western Conference. Needless to say, the purple and gold are looking for some payback tonight.
The last 10 days away from Los Angeles didn't go through...
I’m feeling like Kobe Bryant today, uninspired! Last night Kobe, who is averaging 20.7 FGA per game attempted only 8 shots and aborted 7 of them. That means he missed 7 of 8 in case you’re trying to do the math. Reverse psychology! Not really. Anyway, while Kobe was busy day dreaming about Jason Kidd’s ex-wife, Antawn Jamison stepped up with 19/10/1 and 2 threes in 33 minutes...
The Miami Heat's 107-97 win over the Los Angeles Lakers Sunday afternoon on ABC drew a 5.0 overnight rating. Excluding Christmas Day games, it's good for the second-highest regular season overnight on ABC since they've been airing the NBA in 2002. This year's game trails just a Lakers-Heat matchup from last March, and is tied with a Lakers-Cavaliers game from February...
