I'll rock them only cause its NYK. I will still wear my true O & B every other day but game day. For the record I am against it but who are we ( die hard buyers ) to entertain what the NBA sells to their market I guess lol
This is a short-sided move. What happens when a player F*cks up and the sponsor wants the owner to move him? I'm not even talking off the court BS remember when Bynum try to knock Barea's head off a few years ago. What happens when a team sponsor has a hissy fit over something like that and threatens to pull their advertisement unless Bynum is moved? All this move does is make the NBA beholden to corporate sponsors who only care about their team brand and not winning.
As for the jersey comments, if the advertisement gets big like soccer or nascar they will be ugly. Yes, it will piss some people off, but like everything else, with time people will forget and keep buying. If we die hard fans don't buy, the next generation will, as that is all they will know. I personally don't like it for myself, but that won't keep me from buying a knicks jersey if I want to represent my team. From what I read the advertisement won't be big though, some small patch or something, so shouldn't be a big deal. We are already rocking all these designer names all over our clothe anyway which is advertisement, so won't make a difference...

I have a melo jersey already so I'm good for now.
As long as its not a McDonalds or Dunkin Donuts logo or some dumb ****. I mean most logos are dumb, and currupt. The monetary system is really a crime against humanity.
Instead of commercial ads, they should open up a spot on the jerseys for wealthy individuals to donate money so that their face will be on the jersey for a season. Then you get a new edition every year, with the face of someone new.
Dont worry guys, Dolans already all over it .. literally...
Well, I'm not buying anymore Jerseys for a while, I'm tired of buying new names every year, I think I raised enough retired Knick jerseys in my man cave this decade. Putting ads on the Jersey's isn't a good move imo, suppose I don't like the product...I'll probably ruin the shirt trying to remove that sh!t.
