Default OMG they are taking the leaf off the jerseys!!!

Unless they find somewhere else to put it. I think they should go back to short shorts with the maple leaf covering the entire front like fig leaves.

When the Charlotte Hornets unveiled their new uniforms Thursday, many fans noticed a small but telling detail: The NBA's ubiquitous red, white, and blue logo was missing from familiar position on the upper-chest area of the new jerseys.

Instead, it appeared on the back, above the player names.

The Hornets won't be alone.

All NBA teams will be wearing the logo on the back for the 2014-15 season, the league confirmed to ESPN.com. A league official called it a "stylistic move" but declined to comment further.

Eighteen of the NBA's 30 teams have a team logo in the rear-neckline spot. The league official confirmed that those logos all will be replaced by the repositioned league logo.

The move is sure to fuel speculation that the NBA is preparing to move ahead with its long-planned program of jersey advertising. Removing the league logo from the front of the jersey will clear more space for an ad patch and remove what would otherwise be a competing visual icon.

Annual revenue from jersey ads has been estimated to be in the $100 million range.

I think the Leaf is only on the black jerseys - the others have the claw logo there. I guess both will have to move.

eww. So spend $50+ on a jersey and it is going to have miscellaneous non-team logos on it?! I'd rather buy/make a non-official jersey without the extra crap on it.

Well at least the brands in those photoshopped images match the colors of the uniforms.
We probably won't be that lucky irl.........

If they start advertising on them, I'll never buy another NBA jersey again. I have quite a few already so maybe there's no point.
