At least they’re not sleeved jerseys! The Miami Heat and Brooklyn Nets will be sporting their respective nicknames on the back of their uniforms on January 10th. This is the first time we’ve seen nicknames in the NBA since the 70’s when Pistol Pete Maravich and Walter “Bells” Bellamy wore them for the Atlanta Hawks.
Check out the uniforms for the Miami Heat and Brooklyn Nets below. As you can see Lebron James and Deron Williams went for something simple, while Ray Allen chose to resurrect his character Jesus Shuttlesworth from Spike Lee’s “Het Got Game”.
