The Los Angeles Lakers were one of the most underperforming teams in the league last season. They have the nightmare of a season from Dwight Howard — now considered the “Dwightmare” — and an early exit from the playoffs after being swept by the San Antonio Spurs.

It might be quite a while before this team contends for an NBA title again, but at least they will look good in the process of trying to make the postseason. The Lakers unveiled some new, black ‘Hollywood Nights’ jerseys that are sure to be top sellers once they hit the market.

As you can see, Kobe Bryant looks pretty awesome in the new-look unis. He will be back on the court next season after a devastating injury cut his season short in 2012-13. The Lakers will take the court next season likely donning these slick puppies, and I don’t think anyone will complain.

These blow the weird Golden State Warriors jersey-shirt things that they wore for a few games last season and just looked uncomfortable for the players. The Lakers haven’t done much right lately, but this is definitely something that will be a popular topic for the rest of the offseason for the team as they attempt to try and forget the Dwightmare that they were forced to suffer through.

Well done, Lakers. Well done.
