Adidas Can’t Be Serious…

greenlakersshirt

From the official NBA store:

You'll love this adidas Originals Los Angeles Lakers super-soft, short-sleeve t-shirt. The high-quality cotton shirt is decorated in St. Patrick's Day colors and designed with the distressed team logo screen-printed on the chest for a vintage look.

Is there a Lakers fan alive who would be caught dead in this shirt? Even they are smart enough not to wear this thing. The marketing fool who came up with this design needs to be fired immediately.

It's always pissed me off to see the Bulls wear green uniforms, but at least Chicago has an Irish tradition. I could understand a Cinco de Mayo Lakers T-shirt, but St. Patrick's Day?

Better yet…

Or….

kobe

Both can be found at our online store. What's wrong with a little blatant self-promotion?

Thanks to "yo" for the tip.

    I already have one on order…jeez…I don’t think I could ever wear green let alone a shamrock on my arm!
    Go Lakers

  • baltimoresbest01

    as a Laker fan, i think i represent all of us when i say this is not going to sell at all. this is like expecting a celts fan to buy purple/gold celts shirt. let’s be real, that isn’t happening. i don’t care what holiday it is for, no fan is going to wear a rival’s colors surrounding their team’s logo for no reason

  • Josh

    This shirt fits a niche. Not our, as die hard Celtics (and Lakers) fans, niche. But that niche of of people who rock Lakers gear to look “in” and despite not knowing anything about their family origins they are “Irish” on March 17th and when the Dropkick Murphys play a show in their town.
    While we see this as a “New Coke” level blunder, sadly this design will sell plenty of units.

    Lets face it guys…Josh is right…red and yellow Yankee hats outnumber dark blue these days…”alternative” football jerseys are seen in sports bars every Sunday…these aren’t “REAL” fans to us, but they are still spending money…
    This won’t be a year round seller, but I’m sure it will more than cover production costs…I just know I won’t be buying one…
    Go Purple and Gold

    as a Cavs fan, I’m buying two.

    It even has the clover on the side. This is a T Shirt FAIL. Good eye guys!

  • http://www.wearefanatics.com We Are Fanatics

    Would any Laker fan wear this shirt to a game vs. the Celtics?

  • ForgottenFacts

    HAHAHA, thanks BigMck and Fsantos33, for proving once again that Boston sports fans are all talk. And don’t worry about my nails, I keep them nice and trimmed, just the way your ex likes it. Now that’s impressive.

  • Lakers2416

    Its real funny how those two t-shirts doesn’ts make sense. Turning Lakers into losers? Uhm, excuse me but the lakers have the best record in the league as of right now. So i wouldn’t consider them losers. And as for Kobe Bryant, you guys are just hating him because he is NBA’s best. And you’re just sad because KG or Paul Pierce isn’t in the MVP race. It’s between Kobe and LBJ in my eyes.

  • Lakers2416 is an idiot

    First off, to Lakers2416, the word is spelled doesn’t not “doesn’ts”
    Secondly, let me explain the reason it says Losers on the shirt. If you happened to watch the NBA Finals last year, the Lakers lost, hence LOSERS. And having the best record in the NBA in January doesn’t earn you and trophies.
    Thirdly, Kobe is not NBA’s best, and although winning MVP in the regular season can be kinda nice, winning MVP in the Championship Finals to go along with a championship trophy is better.
    So enjoy the best mid-season record non-trophy and the regular season MVP award, you can have them. That’s not what Pierce or KG is playing for, they’re playing for a much sweeter trophy, number 18.
    Celtics vs. Lakers = 9 – 2

  • franceseen

    I dont mind the Green T, I think it would look great on a blondy with green eyes, but thats just my opinion and thats why we are here, social media, the marketing tool of the century

  • Josh

    Um, no Lakers2416 we hate Lakers because they are Lakers, that is how this thing works. Who cares about MVP race and season record 45 games into the season? One thing matters around here, Banners, and we have 17 of them, 52.9% of which were won against your team. Nine out of eleven times, we have walked away with the banner (.818 winning percentage.)
    Your team is 13 games below .500 in Finals games against the Celtics. We also have current bragging rights.
    Like Fsantos33 said, learn your history.

  • ksurrina

    I don’t see anything wrong with the color. People should be respectful of another country culture. Seeing that it is the day that Irish people celebrate as a national holiday and that is their color why not. Adidas has come to recognized that basketball is bigger than America. You guys need to accept that as well.

  • http://culturemusiclanguage.wordpress.com/ Adam

    I think this is hilarious. The Lakers and NBA clearly profiting off the Celtics color scheme and upcoming Irish holiday. Genius.
    By the way, Celtics, you’re not that cool. You bought an all-star team (and the Red Sox too). I would hope you’re having a winning last few seasons. Get over yourselves.

  • http://zackapalooza.wordpress.com zackapalooza

    The design is nice, save for the color and the shamrock on the arm. It should just be yellow with a distressed logo.

  • Lakers2416

    Oh uhm, I didn’t know this was an English Class and what not. Woaaaah! I made on little typo and you guys are making a big deal. We’re talking about basketball here you nitwits. And I’m talking about right now, you know 2008-2009 season where the Lakers hold the best record in the league. I’m not dating back to the past during the The showtime era. I’m simply saying that the T-shirts doesn’t make sense AS OF RIGHT NOW because last time i checked, we have the best record in the nba. You can put all that statistics and percentages but it doesn’t matter. Kobe is simply the BEST Player in the NBA. Even our 44th president thinks so ;]

  • dom1020

    dont bother arguing with the celtic fans, they’re impossible, if you say something thats true, it either gets deleted or they bring up the finals.

  • Lakers2416 is still an idiot

    last time you checked who has the best record, Lakers2416 must have been before tonight’s game. Cleveland and Boston have better records

  • splendidmishap

    I have to admit, Lakers colors are kind of gross looking, but even so, I wouldn’t wear that!
