Exclamation New BDL Contest: Advertisements on NBA Jerseys

Great contest over at "Ball Don't Lie" via Yahoo Sports by J.E. Skeets.

Maybe some of you creative savy people can submit your own advertisements.

Is it a bad idea? Possibly. I by no means want to see the "Detroit Pepsis" battling the "Miami IcyHot" in early November, but as Joe Maloof, co-owner of the Kings says, "It's a new economic climate now. Any time you can generate revenue in the right way, you should be able to do it. You have to." A sad, but true reality. Cash rules everything around Stern. C.R.E.A.S. Get the money. Dolla, dolla, etc.

But hey, chin up, purist! We can have some fun with this.

Enter the Ball Don't Lie reader-submitted art contest — Advertisements on NBA jerseys.

That's right, we're asking you to send in your drawings, paintings and Photoshops that Girl Talk together some blatant, "in-your-face" advertising with game threads. Harry Potter and the Magic. Wite-Out and the Pacers. That horrible PS job I threw together above: Pepto-Bismol and the Knickerbockers. You down?

We'll run "PD Rules" for this one: Original Photoshops and artwork creations only, and we'll publish as many entries many as we can. Yahoo! Sports rules of profanity and PG-13 content apply. Deadline for submissions is Wednesday, August 5 at 5 p.m. EDT. E-mail contest entries (.JPGs preferred) to jeskeets@yahoo.ca. Judges are Dwyer, Don Draper and myself. Enter as many times as you'd like. Prizes will include NBA Finals gear courtesy of our good friends at adidas.

Have at it, Mad Men.

Terrible, so the jerseys now will look like euroleague jerseys with its ridiculous amount of ads on it I'll probably forget what team I'm cheering for.
Uniforms are supposed to be clean and simple, christ I bet you that jersey sales will double in price because of this move.

Good job Stern, you fucked up once for changing the basketball for a season, and you seem to screw it up again.

it was only a matter of time...
teams are losing money faster than Rosie O'Donnell eats cheeseburgers.
if this can somehow assist poorer teams and help out in terms of lost revenue, i cant complain.
i'd rather this, then a dozen teams filing for bankruptcy or changing locations.

True, but it's going to be hell of a lot different this season.

Spurs with a viagra ad on their jersey.

i don't care either way. I actually think it won't look too bad (maybe even good? - gasp!)

I like the sponsor look somewhat myself.

The NBA will allow advertising on practice jerseys this season, according to a report in USA Today.
