The NBA has tinkered with jerseys back in the sleeves of Adidas kits in an ad that appears in a recent Nike design. The league allowed Orlando to put a social justice message on his bubble game jersey.

The 2013-14 Miami Heat and LeBron James got their nicknames on their backs in their game against the Brooklyn Nets. But the nickname tradition dates back to Pete Maravich for “Pistol” and Elvin Hayes for “Big E,” and some want to revive it. One of the idea’s proponents? Ja Morant, Zion Williamson’s 2019 draftmate.
