The upcoming NBA season will see LeBron James stepping on court in purple and gold,  which means the Los Angeles Lakers are once again the hottest ticket in town. It's fitting, then, that Nike has introduced a LeBron jersey that brings back elements from the franchise's Showtime era of the 1980s. They include a rounded neckline, old-school Lakers typeface and the all-important vertical drop shadow on the numbers. Retailing for $110, the Lebron James Icon Edition Swingman Jersey is available now at select Nike stores and nike.com.
