Looking For Basketball Jerseys?
Why do I need a jersey? Where do I begin looking? Why do I even care? Three questions I have asked myself in the past while looking for the best jersey.
What is it about wearing the jersey of your favorite team? Is it the feel of the jersey, the look of the jersey, or the closeness that the jersey brings you to your team? The reason that you choose to wear a jersey really does not matter. What does matter is that you have chosen to represent your team. You are proud of your team and want everyone to notice. All you need is the best jersey available!
Whether your team is a contender year after year or a pretender every year, you care about your team and want to show it. The jersey on your back represents more than the name on its front. For the fan, the jersey is not just a statement of team unity, it is something more. There is a story to be told and your jersey facilitates that story. You keep asking yourself, where can I get my team’s jersey!
You wear your jersey because something in your past got you hooked on your team. It might have been playing catch with your father when he got home from work or it could have shooting hoops with your big brother. The stories shared between grandsons and grandfathers about Willie Mays, the Browns moving to Baltimore or how Wilt once scored 100 points all play a part in your love affair with your team. Sports are history and people love to think back to a more simple time when sports where sports and business was something you dealt with at work. The jersey brings back the kid in all of us and all you can think about is getting that jersey.
Try attending a game today without seeing hundreds of fans in the stadium or arena wearing some type of basketball jersey. You might ask yourself why a grown man is willing to spend two hundred dollars on a jersey with another man’s name on the back. If you approached a jersey wearing fan with that question you would find there are many reasons why they choose to buy jerseys. Some would say they choose to spend money on a jersey so that they can fit in with the rest of the crowd. Another might say they are comfortable or that they like how it looks. Others spend the money because the jersey means something to them and they can’t explain it.
The jersey wearing fan will come in all shapes and sizes. Some fans don’t purchase jerseys with names on them, while others will pay extra to have their name placed on the jersey. Then there is the fan that will only wear jerseys of greats from the past and would not even consider wearing a modern day player’s jersey. Some fans like cheap basketball jerseys, while others wait patiently to find a retro style uniforms that fits their style. Spending money on a jersey might seem silly to some, but not the sports fan. The jersey brings the fan closer to the game, brings them back to an easier time and allows them to enjoy the little things again. You have to get a jersey to fit in! But where do you go?
