NBA considering Nicknames on Jerseys
- Updated: September 24, 2013
The American basketball league NBA considering using nicknames instead of real names on player jerseys – at least in some games. Several players of the Miami Heat says according to the experiment may be tested in at least one of their games against the Brooklyn Nets next season.
Some examples: Miami’s LeBron James can get hot “King James,” team mate Dwyane Wade could be “D-Wade” and Brooklyn-scoring forward Paul Pierce can play with “The Truth” on the back. The players have been invited to submit the desired nickname and Brooklyn Ray Allen, who plans to have “Shuttleworth” after the character he played in the movie “He Got Game”, is in favor of the idea.
- Everyone has had a nickname, and this is a way to let fans get a little closer to us, he says to NBA.
