Ja Morant Wants Custom Jersey Name That Completely Disrespects Law Enforcement (TWEET + PIC)
When the NBA attempts to resume its season next month at Walt Disney World near Orlando, Florida, the league will allow players to have a say in customizing their jerseys.
Players will be able to replace the last name on their jerseys with a statement on social justice.
Ja Morant seems to have something in mind already.
Somebody on social media decided to take his jersey that already has the No. 12 on it, and put “fuck” at the top so it reads “Fuck 12.”
If you’re not hip to the lingo, 12 refers to cops.
Ja Morant saw it on social media and he loved the idea.
“We’re just trying to continue to shed light on the different social justice issues that guys around our league continue to talk about day in and day out,” NBPA president Chris Paul told Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated. “People are saying that social justice will be off of everybody’s mind in Orlando. With these jerseys, it doesn’t go away.”
