OK, the above photo is pretty cool if you understand the significance of it.
Last night, the Heat and Nets wore nicknames on their jerseys. It’s not the first time the NBA has done this, but it’s the first time where every player had a nickname. I actually don’t mind it at all. It doesn’t ruin the aesthetics of the uniforms and it adds a little fun.
The only problem, however, is that not everyone has a nickname. Some just seemed so forced. But overall, it’s a fine promotion and it apparently is happening a couple more times this season. Let’s just keep it at that. No need to continue to drag this out.
