Word leaks out on "Nickname Jersey" games

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Remember this story?  "Nets may have nicknames on jerseys this season." The Nets and Heat agreed to wear jerseys with nicknames on them, borrowing an idea from the XFL. The teams' players picked out their nicknames over the summer and several revealed them.  At Media Day, for example, Brook Lopez said he wanted "Brooklyn" so he could have the borough's name "on both front and back."

Well, word is slowly leaking out as to when we'll see the "name jersey collection," as the NBA calls it.  The Nets calendar, distributed last week, lists January 10, as the first time the Nets will wear them. The Heat's printable schedule lists two home games, on March 12 and April 8 vs. the Nets and one, on January 21, vs. the Celtics as "name collection uniform games."

The Nets calendar lists five games where the Nets will wear "alternate home uniforms" which appear to be separate from the "Christmas Short Sleeve Jerseys."  The jerseys will be worn March 21 and 28 as well as April 4, 11, and 15, the last home game of the season.

This news follows this week's leak of the uniforms planned for Christmas Day games.
