Kings back in black


I just came back from Arco Arena - oops, I mean Power Balance Pavilion - for the unveiling of the Kings new alternative jerseys. Since black is my universal choice for clothing of all types and circumstances (formal, casual, semi-formal) anyway, I thought the jerseys were sleek and impressive, and a major improvement over those gold alternative unis that were introduced a few years ago. The new black jersey has "Kings" scripted in silver (with purple edging) across the front. While I could have done without the roundish retro lettering, overall, I suspect the look is going to be extremely popular.

As for the price, the replica jerseys sell for $44 (kids) and $59 (adults), with the authentic uniforms tagged at $250 and $275.

One more clothing aside before we let the fashion experts take over: The Kings are marketing the Dec. 26 season opener against the Lakers as a blackout night. They will distribute 17,317 black T-shirts as fans enter the building. Additionally, those who purchase the "Back in Black" four-game ticket package (Lakers, Bulls, Knicks, Hornets) receive different T-shirt to all the games.
