Spike Lee Leaks Images Of Ray Allen’s Nickname Jersey

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — A few months ago the NBA quietly floated word that for a few games this season, some players would be wearing jerseys with nicknames on the back instead of their actual last names. In our post on the idea, we asked for nickname jersey suggestions and got a bunch of “SHUTTLESWORTH” or “JESUS” variations for Miami’s Ray Allen (who played the character Jesus Shuttlesworth in the classic hoops movie He Got Game).

So perhaps who better to share a first look at the Heat’s SHUTTLESWORTH jersey than Spike Lee, the director of He Got Game?

    I like it! It’s going to be fun to put nicknames for all the players – I wonder who will get “ball hog” first, Kobe or Melo? :)

    I’m happy for him winning another ring and maybe more. The nick name jersey is perfect. Love it. Hard to hate on.
