    Advertisements on NBA uniforms

    NBA adds three additional uses of instant replay for 2012-13 season - ESPN

    What is everyone's take on advertising with patches on NBA uniforms?

    I understand the logic behind making boat loads of money but I dont like the idea of just turning a jersey into an advertisement. IMO it takes away from the game.

    Sure, put an ad on the jersey, then lower the ticket prices.

    Don't hate it, Don't like it. It's not like they even really need the money.

    Better yet, get rid of TV timeouts. That's why I don't mind in soccer as the alternative is probably adding some commercial breaks. However, if the NBA does it, I doubt there will any trade off. It will just be a revenue boost for them.

    Re: Advertisements on NBA uniforms

    Don't we get enough ads? One sponsor might not be so bad. I don't think it takes away from the game at all. Just ask Man U fans if they care Aeon or Liverpool fans if they care Standard Chartered are on their kits...soccer has had it for ages. I just don't think it's necessary in a sport like basketball where there are a billion commercial breaks as opposed to almost 90 mins straight in soccer

    Re: Advertisements on NBA uniforms

    Are they going to start talking like NASCAR drivers ?

    Announcer: Kobe, that was a pretty sweet dunk at the end of that fast break.

    Kobe: I knew I could get some serious air with my Nike shoes while running down the TD Ameritrade Court to dunk the Wilson ball in the Starbucks hoop. I thought of just laying it up off the McDonald's backboard but decided the dunk was the way to go.

    Bulls, Celtics, Lakers, Heat, Knicks, Rockets probably don't need the money. Most other franchises do. I remember a few years ago only half the franchises were turning a profit.

    Doesn't seem to affect the fan passion or tradition of much older pro sports teams like Manchester United, Real Madrid, etc...

    I'd like to think it would make tickets cheaper but in reality it would just be more money for players, owners and coaches. Perhhaps some teams that struggle to fill the stands would lower prices to get a better following but Chicago, for example, still sold out when they were starting raw high school kids and mentally insane players a few years back...doubtful they'd reduce ticket prices a single cent with the extra ad revenue.

    I'm in favor. But I'm also a huge soccer fan, so I'm used to seeing it.

    Re: Advertisements on NBA uniforms

    I'm sure it won't be long before they look like cycling jerseys:



    or NASCAR fire suits:



    At least cycling has a legitimate reason for it since all of the fans get to go to the events for free so they have to make up the revenue elsewhere.

    I don't really care about it happening in the NBA, but I will probably come close to crying when NFL franchises that have been around 100 years start advertising on their kit.

    Maybe we should have fun with this and figure out the perfect corporate sponsor for select teams.

    The Carl's Junior Dallas Cowboys.

    As long as the Jones family owns the Cowboys, I think they'd be the last to sell out.
    Now, the Orlando Magic could use that...
