The NBA is kicking off its 2019 All-Star festivities in Charlotte, North Carolina this weekend, and J. Cole and Meek Mill are slated to perform at the All-Star Game on Sunday. But before the celebration goes underway, league commissioner Adam Silver just revealed the “jersey of the future,” in a press conference.
In the one-minute clip above, Adam Silver had some fun showing off the new technology implemented on the classic basketball jersey, which fans could probably use someday. On stage, a Stephen Curry jersey on display was used as an example, and once Silver tapped on a button from a device, the jersey’s name and number changed instantly to Michael Jordan and his signature number, 23.
Overall, the innovative tech looks really cool, but it’s also a downside for fans when a player changes teams or when a franchise undergoes a uniform makeover. Regardless, what are your thoughts on the design? Sound off in the comments section below. There’s no indication yet on when it will debut on the game floor.
