Nike Is Honoring Last Year’s NBA Playoff Teams With These Sick New Jerseys And I Want To Marry Miami’s

When I was growing up, I thought it was a sin to wear the apparel of a team you don’t actually root for, a belief that is still held by many people— including Ben Affleck, who once shut down production on Gone Girl because the director wanted him to wear a Yankees hat.

While I have nothing but respect for that kind of pettiness, my attitude eventually shifted as I gradually gained a deeper appreciation for the logos of the sporting world and began to view them as the works of art that they are.

I went to college during the golden age of the snapback and consequently spent far too much money amassing a collection of retro logos while repping the likes of the Washington Bullets and the Quebec Nordiques.

I have a collection of hats sitting in storage waiting for the day they become cool again, and while I have a bit more self-control than I used to, I’m still an absolute sucker for an old-school aesthetic.

Unfortunately, Nike is making it very hard for me to make responsible financial decisions during the holiday season with its recently-revealed “Earned” line of NBA jerseys designed for each of last year’s playoff teams.

The collection consists of 16 different jerseys, which tinker with some of the concepts that Nike has toyed with recently with some very sexy results.

Last season’s playoff contenders will have the chance to rock these during games starting on Christmas and I don’t see why the Heat won’t do so every single night.
