The Magic Johnson-led Showtime Lakers era is inarguably one of the most iconic and famous teams in the history of basketball, and their rivalry with Larry Bird’s Celtics is often credited with saving the NBA. Fast forward to 2018, and LeBron James is the newest member of the Los Angeles Lakers, looking to start a brand new era of his own.
Of course, the Lakers are one of the most history-rich franchises in sports, and Nike is well aware of that.
To pay homage to the ghosts of Lakers past, a Nike Icon jersey from the Showtime Era with LeBron’s number popped up on Nike News this morning.
