The NBA is admiting that the XFL got it right. It looks like the NBA is going to experiment with player "nicknames" on the back of their jersey.
"It shows growth in our league and it shows we do adapt to what's going on around us," saidRay Allen, the Heat guard who plans to wear "Shuttlesworth" on his jersey, a nod to his character from the film "He Got Game." "And we're still kids, playing a kids' game. Even though we're now men playing a kids' game, we still remember where we come from. Everybody had a nickname, and it's a way to let the fans in a little bit more."
