As I was browsing the interwebs this morning, and hey, stop judging me, I had to put together payroll this morning and, uh, that’s all…
The AP reports that the NBA is eyeing “nickname jerseys” for at least one Nets-Heat matchup this season, when instead of last names on the back of the uniform, players will sport their nicknames
I, for one, would have absolutely wear an NBA authentic
one of those.
Hell, I’d go so far as to rock CAC nickname jerseys! Who wouldn’t want an CAC jersey with famous name and number combinations with the infamous CAC Basketball logo
#4 – Jumpman (or Wolverine or Cheese )
#6 – The Animal
#7 – Five Hard Fouls
#11 – R.O.Y.
#21 – Pistol Pete (or Pootie Tang)
#24 – Ghost
#25 – Hacksaw
#29 – The 4 Time Champ
#34 – Magic
#42 – Orange Slices
#44 – #DaddyBells
#54 – Commish (I’m not going with Tibbs!)
#55 – The Bully
That’s just off the top of my head, the list really is endless and I’m sure you’ll all let me know who I forgot (you) in the comments. Someone get our vendors on the horn!
I wouldn’t blame anyone for wanting a KG or Truth jersey, but for the love of all things holy don’t buy a Shuttlesworth Heat jersey
Heats and Nets will wear nickname jerseys[Deadspin]
