Have you got a link on that? He moved the Lakers to the Forum in 67 & changed their colors from apparently a Royal Blue & Light Blue to Purple & Gold, and in designing the Kings logo & jersey followed the same color scheme. I cant find anywhere that explicitly states the Lakers followed the Kings, but quite a few citations that state the Lakers color scheme was mimicked by the Kings. Rather a moot point, doesnt matter, but if the Kings were first, be interested in reading up on it.
