        Yeah the fan experience at those games is out of this world. I've been to a few red star Belgrade games and it's absolutely insane if you sit (more like stand/jump) in the fan section. I Wish fan culture in NBA was at least a little more intense.

          The reason soccer is the worlds most popular sport is because anyone with 2 feet and a ball can play it: so basically 99% of the world (you can hand make a ball). It's also the home of the worst diving in sports, and sometimes up to 30 40 minutes of literally nothing happening, just midfielders working it back and forth. Nothing against fans of it, but no sport can claim to be the best in the world, just because more people like it. If that was the case then the backstreet boys would be in the hall of fame

              Meh. More revenue for the owners and players that doesn't come from my pocket. What's not to like? They even kind of hid the patches, unlike the monstrosities in BKN, for example.
              Can we get a break on salary cap with this?

                  Next year the cap might be higher if league revenues are higher, if that's what you mean.

                      Now is the time to buy a jersey before you have to buy one with an ad on it.

                      Exactly my thoughts. I really hope they don't go the WNBA route, those jerseys are ugly. Half the time you can't even see the team logo, especially on TV. Who would want to wear this with ads taking up the majority?

                        They became walking billboards when they started signing shoe deals.

                          Thoughts on this, guys? I'm angry that were seeing ads on jerseys.... and that our Raptors just have to go ahead and do this.
                          You can look at it another way though. Steps like these increase the league's revenue streams which leads to an even healthier NBA busniess and a more lucrative NBA for all those players we root for.

                          As long as they don't go all to hell with it I'm 'ok' with it.

                            It's less in your face than US broadcasts that license every possible segment of the game. "KFC Buckets Shot Chart " etc.

                              Remember when boards in hockey didn't have ads? Looks weird by today's standards, doesn't it (in addition to refs not wearing helmets).



                              We'll eventually get to a point where logos on jerseys don't bat an eye, either.

                                Damn, the 1986 ASG in Hartford. Nice one.

                                I'm hoping that one day sleeved jerseys will be to the NBA what Cooperall pants are to hockey (but I suspect the NBA is creating jersey space for ads):
