The Lakers teased their fan base last month with conversation about joining the jersey craze and rolling out black uniforms.

Wednesday the Lakers officially unveiled their black Hollywood Nights uniforms.

The jerseys feature a black base color with numbers and lettering in purple, outlined with gold trim.  Lakers executive Jeanie Buss discusses the new uniforms in the video clip below.

The organization provided some additional detail from the official press release.

The organization has consistently heard from fans that a black uniform was desired, and have been working to make that a reality for years. The Lakers have a long history and philosophy of listening to fans, and as a public trust are in the business of serving fan interest, from colors of uniforms up to the ultimate goal of winning championships. The purple and gold uniforms will forever be the staple for the Lakers, with the black ones adding what the Lakers hope to be a cool alternative.

What do you think Lakers fans?
