mcw-draftwithjerseyAccording to numerous online reports (We believe Tim Reynolds of the AP had the story first.), some members of the Miami Heat have been told the NBA is considering having them and the Brooklyn Nets wear ”nickname jerseys” in at least one of their match-ups this season.

The NBA has not officially announced any plans for a “nickname jersey” game, but it seems to be the worst kept secret in the NBA right now as players from both Miami and Brooklyn apparently have been aware of the idea for several weeks.

So we started to wonder, if the 76ers were ever included in such a unique promotion, what would be written on the back of their “nickname jerseys”?


The Heat and Nets will provide for some excellent ”nickname jerseys” that I am sure will be top sellers for the NBA.  “King James”; “The Big Ticket”; “D-Wade”; “The Truth” and “D-Will” are just a few of the ”nickname jerseys” that will be in big demand after the promotional game between the Heat and Nets.  Ray Allen has said that he plans to have “Shuttlesworth” on the back of his ”nickname jersey” as a tribute to the legendary character he played in the film “He Got Game”.

On the other hand the Sixers potential ”nickname jerseys” aren’t so obvious and there’s no doubt the merchandise won’t sell as well as those worn by the Heat and Nets.  So, despite the fact that this promotion will most likely never happen in Philadelphia, below are several ideas for what could be written and what should be written on the back of the 7-6’s ”nickname jerseys”.
