The NBA rolled out one of the crucial beloved uniform campaigns in league history for a marquee matchup between the Miami Heat and Brooklyn Nets in 2014..
As a substitute of last names on the backs of jerseys, players had their iconic nicknames plastered above their numbers.
For instance, LeBron James rocked a “King James” jersey, Kevin Garnett sported “Big Ticket” and Paul Pierce displayed “Truth.”
Despite an overwhelmingly positive fan response to this campaign, the NBA has never brought back these nickname jerseys.
Memphis Grizzlies superstar Ja Morant hopes the league changes that soon.
“Should the NBA bring back the nickname jerseys?” Legion Hoops asked on Twitter.
“Yep,” Morant responded.
The NBA world had some fun with some hypothetical nickname jerseys for the fashionable league.
It will surely be fun to see a number of the league’s young stars rocking these iconic nickname jerseys.
Morant recently referred to himself as “Black Jesus” — a nickname once held by Michael Jordan. Perhaps that is the name that may go on the back of his nickname jersey.
Would you wish to see these uniforms make a return?
