Earlier this month, LeBron James had a very poor shooting night during a game against the Spurs. And after the game, he said that it was because the short-sleeve jerseys that the Heat had to wear that night bothered him and affected his shot. So King James will be very happy to hear that he might not have to wear those jerseys anymore. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver spoke with Bleacher Report over the weekend about the jerseys and said he would be willing to do away with them if players hate them as much as LeBron does.
"Ultimately, if the players don't like them, we'll move on to something else," he said. "I don't regret doing it for this season. But it's intended to be something fun for the fans and the players. And if it becomes a serious issue as to whether players should be wearing sleeves, we'll likely move onto other things."
That won't happen until at least the end of the current season, though. So until then, Silver has some advice for any players who hate the jerseys.
"The one thing that annoys me about the fit [issue] is that guys do select the size that they wear," he said. "The players could wear a larger size."
Hear that, LeBron? No more smedium jerseys and you should fine.
