If the rumors are true, the NBA may be allowing members of the Nets and the Heat to wear nicknames on the back of their jerseys for select matchups between the two teams this season. Names like King James, D-Wade, The Truth and The Big Ticket may be adorning the back of jerseys from time to time this year. Overall it seems like a brilliant idea. Players get to show off their own individuality and the league gets to make a few extra shekels in uniform sales. It’s a win-win situation.
As always though, I’m looking for the Suns’ spin on the biggest sports stories. Sure, I could sit here and tell you which current members of the team would have the coolest monikers on the back of their jerseys if they were included in the NBA experiment but quite frankly, that would just be lazier than Robert DeNiro’s performance in The Family. With that in mind, it’s time to give you the Top 5 Coolest Nicknames for the Back of a Jersey in Suns history in this week’s “Greg’s List.”
