07:16 AM ET 08.21 | Los Angeles is taking its new-look team to the extent of a truly new look. [The Lakers] have one of the richest histories in the NBA with Hall of Famers and championships galore, but even historic franchises can be fashion forward. The Lakers will wear short-sleeve jerseys next season in "several" games, according to a team source. The jerseys will be white, the same color as the alternative uniforms the Lakers introduced for the 2002-03 season and traditionally wear on Sundays. ... The Phoenix Suns, who recently redesigned their jersey, also will have a short-sleeve alternate in their uniform set next season. According to a league source, adidas has mocked up short-sleeve alternative jerseys for all 10 teams playing on Christmas Day.
