NBA considering nicknames on jerseys Published: September 24, 2013

The NBA and its teams have worked overtime in recent years to come up with fresh new jerseys in the interest of moving more merchandise, according to Yahoo Sports.

The site reports there have been special uniforms to honor Latin heritage, rebrands and redesigns, retro reissues and short-sleeced strips, a slew of alternate unis and, in some cases, a little bit of everything.

We're not quite yet at the point where every team's uniforms will feature overt sponsorship, but we learned Monday that this season could bring a new wrinkle that some might find even odder than an encroaching logo: players' nicknames.
