In the near future, the NBA will be doing something very similar to professional soccer teams in the U.S. and overseas in terms of having advertisements on jerseys. NBA commissioner Adam Silver says ads on jerseys in the NBA is right around the corner. Many have criticized the league wanting to starting putting ads on team jerseys, but the ball has already begun rolling.

Graphic Designer Jesse Nunez put together soccer-styled versions of NBA jerseys with the Lakers looking like the image below:

It’ll be interesting to see how the NBA goes about putting ads on jerseys in the years to come and if the league continues to receive criticism as a result. A lot more revenue will be earned as a result of the ads, but fans have already voiced their displeasure with the move the league is taking.
