Although it has been on their unis in the 1980s:My linkIt was on the shorts back in the early 70’s – I wanna say the ’72-73 season, but I can’t be sure without checking.The logo the OP posted reminds me of the font & colours used when the team was in Minneapolis, but I don’t know if it’s something made up for the game. It’s funny, the Lakers are arguably the NBA’s most recognisable and most popular franchise, yet we have no idea what logos they used for a big chunk of the 60’s. Just goes to show how little the NBA and its teams care for their history. Link to post Share on other sites Location:California Location:Fargo, N.D.
