It looks like the NBA/Finals patch may be moved back to the front of the jersey. It's that way in NBA 2K18, anyway. 

Even for teams who have an ad patch? Did they remove the ad patch or the Nike logo from the front? Got a screenshot?

From the looks of it and angles  .... yep. Don't get too excited.

The Finals is the weakest brand of the four championships (Super Bowl > World Series > Stanley Cup with a big gap between 2 and 3) but at least they had that cool cursive logo. YA BLEW IT

Just saw another post confirming it's about an Ad Sponsor... Damn. I had a glimmer of hope the Heat would be spared.

I'm becoming more and more of a fan of that OKC jersey every time I see it. The lightning effect on the OKC really does a lot for such a blank identity otherwise.

Am I going crazy or does the number look like it's shaped differently in this photo than in previous years? Almost looks like it's narrower and just off-center but not really aligned with the right side of the wordmark. Other option being there are three digits there that have something to do with the sponsor that's being revealed.

 

edit:Now I think I'm just going crazy. Probably nothing to see hear.

I can't decide if they're going for lightning or like a static effect- which kinda plays into the sound/loudness theme the say they're going for with the lines on the back.. I thought there was something wrong with the picture the first couple times I saw it, to be honest.

According to their Facebook, theres a live video just playing this. I'm guessing its whatever Ultimate Software is.

It'll be the same on the red jersey and on the white jersey its a red swoosh and ad will be black.

I agree, I'll take boring over something really weird that sticks out like a sore thumb. This is forgettable, and thats fine with me lol

I mean isn't that what we would want? Same color as the jersey so that it blends in and "kinda" disappears. In a world where ads will be around that's the best case scenario right?

Oh yes, this is best case scenario. Weakest wasn't the best word choice, but the combination of the thin font and off-white patch itself reeks of sadness.

For those of you who wanted to see the Lakers reject the patch nonsense, Wish rejected.

 

Darren Rovell has the pics:

 

 

That means 16 teams have a patch thus far

Sorry, no pics. That means 16 teams have a patch for this season.

 

Nothing is sacred when it comes to the almighty dollar.

FIFY. Even if there aren't any more teams that add a patch before the season starts, they can add one at any point during the season if they're able to strike a deal.

More shots of the patch on the Lakers' jerseys:

Obviously I'd rather the Lakers not have an ad patch, but this isn't awful. Having the logo match the color of the Nike swoosh on all three jerseys at least satisfies my OCD.
