According to Sports Illustrated: Sporting a corporate logo during games is indeed against NBA rules. Item 5 of Section H of the NBA rule book’s extended comments section, which governs “player/team conduct and dress”, reads: “The only article bearing a commercial ‘logo’ which can be worn by players is their shoes.” The language appears alongside other uniform notes, which include: no t-shirts, players must tuck their uniform shi...
