This is a massive marketing gimmick, totally pathetic. They use the excuse "we're adapting with the times".....what a tonne of rubbish, because people didn't have nicknames in the past? This league is turning into a money grabbing, shameless monster. It's the same with the sleeved tops.....another last ditch way to make money. What they should be doing is focusing on how to get more people involved in basketball and how they can reduce ticket prices, not this utter rubbish.
"If it ain't broke don't fix it."
Adapting to what times? NBA has had nicknames on Jersey's as far back as pre-60s!
