Players’ Weekend

What if the NBA Copied the MLB’s Players’ Weekend Concept?

On Monday, MLB teams announced all the nicknames that will be on the back of their jerseys come the MLB Players’ Weekend set to run from August 23-25.

The concept of the weekend is simple.

As a way of adding another layer of excitement to the game, teams will rock custom jerseys and each player will be able to select a nickname to put on the back of their jersey for the entire weekend. Some nickname include High Foltage, Yazmanian Devil, and Haderade.

So this concept got us thinking.
