    Though I hate ads on jerseys, if they sell a jersey like this, I'd buy it

    No one's going to like them better than the plain ones. The question is how much you hate them.

    Those aren't bad.

    I support this initiative. This probably means the NBA will take the revenue from TV commercials and replace that with jersey ad revenue, meaning less TV commercials for NBA fans!! That's probably what's gonna happen!!!

    Cheapens the game. Might as well put "Condom Depot" on their shorts.

    We are used to them in Europe so much that unless it's a really glaring logo you barely notice them, but that's because we have had them for so long. I like how clean USA sports jerseys always looked, the trade-off seems to be that US sports have much more ads during breaks in play, but now the NBA is getting both. I'd be pissed off.

    I was going to say.. I guess we're going full Premier League possibly. I agree we already have enough advertising on tv and in the stadiums.

    I don't like it. However, it is good for business.

    I'd 100% support full-on ads on NFL jerseys if it means cutting into the the outrageous amount of ads on TV.

    If jerseys looked like this I'd be pissed.

    I probably wouldn't care if, as mentioned, this was going to have some sort of effect on ticket prices or less ads.

    No I think a company sponsorship patch cheapens the jersey appearance and makes it too cluttered. I am not in support of this

    See the likes of Qatar Airways isn't that bad, just plain white. In time you barely notice it (though Barca were kind of sneaky the way they put Unicef on it at first to accustom people to them, before then switching to proper sponsorship).

    Rugby is my main sport though, it only turned pro just over 20 years ago, but now the jerseys are plastered with ads. Like here is my teams home jersey, has one in the middle, two on the back of the shorts and two either shoulder. .

    Looks awful and cluttered, but it's kind of necessary because population sizes, poor value TV deals compared to English and French leagues etc. means that we need revenue from somewhere, so you have to deal with it because it's necessary. And we would be one of the most financial secure teams in our league.

    Just seems to be the way modern sports are going. It is a good source of revenue that can be put back into player development, facilities and so on. The GAA (Irish sports) is still amateur in the olympic sense, like rugby used to be (though both have/had been accused of shamateurism), but even then GAA jerseys have had sponsors since the early 90s. But again, it just seems more like it's out of necessity, or at least a good source of revenue. It's not like it is wholly commercialised, in this case of the NBA it just seems like pure greed though. It's not like they need more money, and as you say, it's not like it's gonna benefit fans in other areas.

    As long as it's a decent sponsor I don't mind. I just can't support Middle Eastern airlines advertising on U.S. soil.

    The jersey is sacred man.

    Keep that shit in Europe, or kill the commercials like they do in Soccer.

    Personally, I think the Europeans are way, way, way ahead of us there, largely thanks to the fact that commercials destroy the flow of the game whereas most of our sports handle breaks well.

    If they want to turn Lebron into a NASCAR stock car, then I don't want to see any more shitty TV commercials. Don't add a single break/timeout that isn't part of international regulations.

    people who think that are smoking crack. no league is going to drop prices or have less ads as a result. they constantly look for more ways to add revenue, not give it back. as long as we continue to sell out stadiums, or at least have great attendance, they will keep sticking it to the fans. the prices will keep rising, players will keep making more, and owners will make more than that. I think they realize they have gone about as high as they can with tickets, considering a working family can barely afford to go anymore, so they are looking for alternate ways. gotta pay stephs 40 million salary somehow
