Sleeved Jerseys have been a new design the NBA has been pushing on fans for the past couple of years, but they haven't stuck.
Rather then give up on the new jersey designs, the NBA has opted to create more design styles for different teams hoping one will stick. Yesterday, Lebron James and the Cavs were forced to wear the sleeved jerseys in a game against the Knicks. LBJ and his team struggled to find comfort in the new designs all game. The King got frustrated to the point that he ripped them off his arms mid game.
Finally someone has stood up to the NBA on this design disaster.
The sleeves have also been unpopular with many of the league's players, including LeBron himself, who first complained about them more than a year and a half ago, when he was still playing for the Miami Heat.
Hopefully LBJ tearing his jersey to shreds will lead to the end of these jerseys, but maybe I am wrong. Maybe fans do like the sleeved NBA jersey design.
