Do real Swingman jerseys have the Larry O'Brien Trophy gold tabs on the neck?

That's an obvious fake, seeing as how it has the old wordmark and number font on the front.

My favorite part of the jersey is easily the swoosh with a random red segment. Whoever made the fake apparently doesn't understand shadows.

The Bucks haven't announced anything in terms of the jersey sponsorship.  Don't know where you got this from. 

 

It wasn't Milwaukee, but Minnesota that went with FitBit.

Another fake jersey:

Poorly based off this concept.IMG_1414.thumb.JPG.fe0d06261a4b3b7e7430d46d2394214d.JPG 

It's actually based off of this concept, again made by @Max Sang:

That means on the home whites and alt grays (if they are still around), it'll sort of say "Disney MAGIC", right?  Hokey, yet cool. 

 

 

Which kind of turns the whole jersey into an ad for one of Disney's cruise ships. This is a very circular advertisement deal.

I always thought Disney was going to be in a partnership with a NBA team.

 

Thinking it was going to be the Lakers, not Magic.

Is there a deadline for sponsors on jerseys? 

 

Like if my Bulls don't get a jersey patch sponsor by the start of 2017-18 does that mean they are spared from atrocities for 1 more year??!!

 

Or can it come mid-season? Playoffs? I wonder.. ?????

You just know the following brands are going to sponsor somebody-

* Apple (Golden State??)

* Samsung (Knicks?)

* LG (Charlotte, NO, ATL??)

 

Also you just know that Detroit will announce they are sponsored by Ford

Which is why an advertisement by another automaker would be such a coup d'état.

Apple is perhaps the last brand in the world that needs to slap a logo on a sports jersey.

Idk about Ford for the Pistons. Chevy just got named the official automotive sponsor at the new arena. I could see any of the big 3 automakers. I'd be fine with Ford or GM since they have blue logos that wouldn't be distracting on the Pistons uniforms.

 

They did announce the new practice facility will be sponsored by the Henry Ford Hospital Health system so that could be a possibility too.

Weren't the Timberwolves supposed to unveil their uniforms before the draft?

Nah, we were just guessing that it could happen so that the draft pick would be pictured with the new uniform, but I guess we were wrong! Maybe Nike has some kind of issue that we don't know about so that they can't have anything public for the NBA...I don't even know.

From their Press release when they annouced Fitbit as a jersey sponosr:

Quote

The jersey patch will be unveiled later this summer with the new uniforms.

 

What "later this summer" means? I don't know.

From what I've heard they are waiting for adidas' contract to officially run out. Apparently that isn't until summer league is being played.
