The NBA has come up with yet another way to cash in on their sports slaves — without them ever seeing a dime. Know how? Reports reveal National Basketball Association is testing the nicknames of their players over a plan to release a new line of sports apparel.
“The NBA is considering letting players from the Miami Heat and Brooklyn Nets wear nicknames on their jerseys … in one of their four matchups this season.”
Here’s what Newsy.com is reporting:
“You might have to look twice to find NBA greats like James, Wade, Garnett, Pierce and others on the court next time. Instead, you might find King James, Flash, KG, and The Truth in their place.”
Did the NBA pull in a fortune from rappers wearing their jersey’s? Of course. Don’t believe me.. Ask Fabolous.
