    These are supposedly just Christmas day jerseys and feature the players' first name on the back. Although it's not out of the question, I doubt we'll be getting one.

    Not sure I like the "gold tab" idea to showcase teams that have won championships. The successful franchises need more attention? Maybe it's just my Raptor fandom bitterness, but a lack of a gold tab tells an average NBA fan that a team is/has been, mostly terrible.
    There's math, and everything else is debatable.

    Dude what the? Why? Like what?

    That wasn't even directed as a jab at anyone. Just a snide remark towards that idea of gold tabs.

    Did you wake up in a bad mood? Hope you have a pleasant day man!

    hey man i'm just saying

    i'm not a lebron fan by any means but it's getting old seeing people taking shots at a guy who's won 2 championships and been to the finals 6 times. i loathe the cavs but it is what it is.

    Its not pissing on Lebron man! my comments were meant to say that the guy thats responsible for the last 2 out of 3 championships doesnt get the honor of wearing a gold tab on his jersey.

    its sucha stupid idea for a league. i can understand why FIFA does it cuz players dont switch team in international plays.

    But i guess i shoulda chose my words properly instead of lazy comments.

    but yea.. i aint pissin on lebron

    Will there be any difference between the celtics gold tab and the king's for example? A team that won 17 championship compared to a team that won 1

    Here's Derrick Rose's Chicago Bulls jersey for the 2014-2015 season. You'll notice a gold tab along the collar. Apparently, these will be assigned to teams that have won an NBA Championship. Multiple winners will be indicated by tonal notation.
    It'll be tonal.

    I agree, kinda stupid. LBJ doesn't get it but the Philly youngsters will, a season after tying the worst losing streak of all time.

    I'm not sure how proud the current sixers players could be about a championship the franchise won over 3 decades ago. I get the idea but I think it makes more sense in international play, where most players I assume are proud to represent their country, and even moreso if that country has a legacy or has experienced the highest level of success. Players in domestic leagues may not necessarily be proud to play for a certain team or any team for that matter, but just proud to be in the league at all.

    I agree it doesn't carry the same weight as stars on international jerseys but it has no actual downside, it reminds fans and players that at one time their team was the champion.

    Also you have to understand these things are voted on by the owners and the NBA, they get to show off that the team they own were champions and also sell more jerseys everytime a new team wins the title.

    It'd be cool if it was given on a player to player basis. Like if a player has won a title give him a tab. Then Lebron gets the tab he deserves and the Philly guys don't since they don't deserve it.
