I thought this was the dumbest thing EA could think of until I found out they're actually doing this in real life. lol
So, my note to the NBA, "I think this is the dum....."

This was a terrible idea by the NBA. Hopefully this was the first and last time it will be done. The game its self was a really good game to watch. Thankfully the announcers didn't call them by their dumb nicknames.

I'm ready for these to be gone, or at least selectable. I don't want King James and D-Wade running around in my game anymore.

I know what you mean, posted this on the other thread but I'll say it again, played a rewind game of Knicks and heat and the heat had all nicknames... Cool gimmick but once is enough (and especially in my video game)

the problem is that they just replaced the names on the default jerseys instead of either giving us an option of which names to use or adding new jerseys with the nicknames. i started a dynasty with the cavs and the first game against the nets had the nicknames.

I am pretty sure that isnt the case.

For one he doesnt want to be called "Flash" anymore, said that a good while ago, and quite frankly it not really accurate any more.

but Flash be copyrighted and not "Joker" "Birdman" and most of all "King James"? I find that hard to believe.

This is cool and all but you know what would be cooler? Actually making the game itself better. #justsaying

Not calling you a liar, and I could be totally off base...but I did actually look it up and couldn't find it...though it wasn't the deepest of searches..

i did a half azz search, it was the first link under my search.

"Q: Why wasn't Dwyane Wade's jersey nickname "Flash"? Does he really hate it that much? -- Chris, Valparaiso, Indiana.

A: It had nothing to do with Wade's preference in the NBA's "Name Collection" that was unveiled Friday in Brooklyn (with Wade's uniform having to wait until he is back in action). It has to do with copyright issues, in this case the very character that Shaquille O'Neal initially compared Wade to. Basically, that choice was off limits. It's why Mario Chalmers' could not wear a "Super Mario" jersey this season, as well as why Shane Battier couldn't wear his preferred "Batman" jersey."

Wade now calls himself W.O.W.(Way of Wade). Pretty weak. http://www.cbssports.com/nba/eye-on-...awful-nickname
