Uniforms Rumors

Nike publicly addressed its “lighter” NBA jerseys that have come under scrutiny after at least five players’ jerseys have ripped during the 2017-18 season. The company provided a statement to USA TODAY Sports on Tuesday morning, noting plans to alter the jerseys in order to avoid more tears during games. It did not disclose how many jerseys, if not all, would be discarded or replaced for better quality.
