Report: Jimmy Butler will not be allowed to wear no name on jersey

Jimmy Butler

Jimmy Butler won’t get his wish to wear no name on the back of his jersey during the NBA restart.

Butler said last Tuesday he wanted to wear no name on his nameplate, saying that no name and no message would go back to “who I was.” According to Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press, however, Butler will not be permitted to do so, as the uniform player agreement requires something to be on the back of a jersey.

Butler explicitly said he did not want to wear his own name, so it will be interesting if he chooses one of the pre-approved social justice phrases in light of the decision.

The Heat guard certainly appears ready for the season based on his bubble activities. We just don’t know what will be in the back of his uniform yet.
