Could this be the future?
Advertising on jerseys is nothing new for most of the world, but all the major professional leagues in America are still holding out. That could be changing, as the NBA's official Twitter account tweeted (then quickly deleted) this image of Warriors F Harrison Barnes wearing a jersey with a Kia advertisement on it:
There's no way to know if this was a mockup that was leaked by accident, a joke that got out of hand or even the work of a hacker, but with commissioner Adam Silver's announcement that jersey ads could be on the way, it looks like this might be a reality sooner rather than later.
