NBA to Allow Ads on Jerseys. RIP Jersey Guys

ESPN – NBA owners are scheduled to vote this week on putting ads on jerseys for the 2017-18 season, multiple sources told ESPN. The measure is expected to pass, according to sources. Several teams have begun testing the market to sell the potentially lucrative ads, which would be placed in a 2.5-by-2.5-inch patch on the left shoulder.

*Hate* this move. You knew it was coming, there were whispers in the dark corners of the NBA rumor mill and there was no way the NBA was going to let the profit orange remain unsqueezed. But seriously, RIP to the Jersey Guys like myself. I never thought anything would legitimately make me grow up and stop wearing jerseys in public. Maybe turning 30? Probably not. But slap a Hot Pocket patch on my Isaiah Thomas jersey? See ya later. This is what ruins most soccer jerseys, which all have the potential to be really cool. Starts with one small ad, then you get a Manchester United jersey with a giant goddamn Chevy logo in the middle and you look like a NASCAR driver. I am out on this move. Brace yourselves Jersey Guys.
