Get Ready For Sponsored Logo Jerseys

Get ready to sponsor logos on NBA jerseys. It's most likely coming in the next five years, NBA commissioner Adam Silver told an audience at the IMG World Congress of Sports on Wednesday. "It just creates that much more of an opportunity for our marketing partners to get to get that much closer to our fans and to our players," Silver said at the conference, put on by the Sports Business Daily/Journal. "It gives us an opportunity just to have deeper integration when it comes those forms of sponsorship."

Commissioner Adam Silver says NBA jerseys to have sponsor logos in near future - ESPN

As long as they keep it to one 2.5" x 2.5" logo tastefully placed then I can accept that. If they do it like the WNBA where the sponsored logo pretty much replaces the team logo on the front then I will complain that they are ruining jerseys. I understand why the WBNA does it. Their profits are much much less than the NBA. However, if done like that in the NBA, I could see the decline in jersey sales offset the increase in sponsorship money.

Tastefully placed?

I also oppose advertisement labels on the crotch of the uniform.

I don't like it, however, it doesn't seem to have a negative effect on soccer jerseys sales which don't have team names at all...

As long as they keep it to one 2.5" x 2.5" logo and never let it look like this.

That's just terrible. they clearly removed their boobs to place the H-E-B logo.
I thought they said it was going to be tasteful?!

They should have put them on the back of their jerseys.

Preferably on the portion of the jersey that is tucked into their shorts.

Way to destroy the history. Do the players get paid more? Pretty soon the jerseys will look like a college football helmet.
