Are Sponsor Logos On NBA Jerseys A Good Idea?

David Stern is gone, and it is now Adam Silver’s turn to grow the NBA. His latest idea includes the notion that in just five years, sponsor logos on NBA jerseys will be a thing. While this could explain (at least partially) why sleeves have appeared more and more throughout the NBA, the ads on jerseys are coming regardless, because C.R.E.A.M. Currently on the NBA’s roster of...

Welcome to the hot seat, Commissioner Silver

Will Boston ever host the All-Star game again?

How can the most storied franchise in NBA history be shafted every year for All-Star weekend? What about the fact that Boston is one of the greatest sports cities in America. I feel like this was a David Stern thing, and maybe Boston has a sliver of hope with the new commissioner. It's been over 50 years since Boston held the All-Star game.
