Passing Judgment: The NBA Name Game

So the NBA is considering putting nicknames on the backs of Nets and Heat jerseys this season.  This is completely ridiculous.  This is the National Basketball Association – not the XFL.  But I get it…the NBA wisely markets its superstars and superteams to its young fan base and they will willingly shell out dollars to […]
