While the future of the NBA looks bright and exciting, the Phoenix Suns continue to swirl around the league's drain. Commissioner Adam Silver is showing off futuristic jerseys that can transform from one player's name and number to another. This application would be useful for the Suns as the team remains a revolving door for NBA veterans. Imagine the money the organization can save with the push of a button transforming an outgoing vet's jersey into an incoming vet's jersey.
No more stitches wasted on players whose tenure is expected to brief or nonexistent. For example, the Suns could have recycled Jared Dudley's number-three twice in the span of six months since J.D. was dealt to the Nets and Trevor Ariza was signed only to be flipped as soon as the rules would allow for Kelly Oubre Jr. Phoenix fans no longer have to save their receipts and can simply turn a wasted purchase of an expensive short lived Sun to the hottest newcomer. With the ease of a smartphone dating app you could swipe right or left from one player to another to grace your lottery bound jersey.
The name and number of bought out players can flicker on the back of a Suns jersey like the lights on a Christmas tree. For a brisk moment we can see what a Wayne Ellington, Austin Rivers or Darrell Arthur Suns jersey could have looked like.
Dream in wonderment, as you could don the jersey of the latest 10-day contract player or most recent G-League promotion. The future is now for the NBA, despite the Phoenix Suns being stuck in league irrelevancy.
