The NBA is considering having the Miama Heat and the Brooklyn Nets wear “nickname jerseys” in at least one of their matchups this season. For example, Four-time NBA MVP LeBron James is expected to wear “King James.”
Yeah, pretty lame when you refer to yourself as your nickname, However, Kendall Marshall of the Phoenix Suns summed it up best.
“The nickname makes it more about the individual. It’s still a team sport. Represent your team, your family, and go out there and play.”
