NBA Changing numbers in his third season with the Lakers
Sare times of change in the NBA. Next season, the 21/22, all NBA teams will wear the Jordan logo on jerseys. It will be in the so-called third kit. Jordan Brand dress the teams, including the Pistons, archrivals of the Bulls myth. There will also be sounded changes of numbers. Kevin Durant has chosen the ‘7’ for his stage in Brooklyn and LeBron James is willing to give the ’23’ to Anthony Davis.
LeBronIn his desire to make the landing of Anthony Davis in Los Angeles as comfortable as possible, he tried to give him his number last season. Nike prevented it. To do this type of swap, the NBA must know before March 15. Even so, those responsible for the League gave the go-ahead to the change that ‘returned’ to LeBron at the time of the Heat. In Miami he played with that number and also with the United States team.
But Nike rejected the change due to production problems (thousands of T-shirts were already manufactured LeBron with the ’23’) and refused to bear the financial impact of such losses. Davis announced hours after Nike’s statement that it would adopt the number ‘3’.
He ’23’ was always Davis’ favorite number in the NBA, the only one he took in his time with the Pelicans. Now you can wear it in the Lakers. For LeBron the change will be pleasant because he can wear one of his favorite numbers. Not only in Miami and with the United States team, LeBron got the ‘6’ on Space Jam 2 as well.
The Lakers will also change some colors next season. They will have a retro jersey as a tribute to the first team in the franchise that played in LA in 1960. It will be blue.
The change of number for LeBron is not a minor thing. Nor for Nike. James is the player who sells the most shirts and Davis the third. Now they will change the ‘look’ to their shirts. We will see with what effect.
