It’s to support ABA players. You know, the guys that basically created the exciting, fast action type of game the NBA became once it swallowed up the ABA. Those ABA guys made about as much as the guys that swept up after the game. Grant Hill (retired NBA with big bucks) is personally matching dollar-for-dollar.

The ABA merged with the NBA in 1976.

I agree. The black/white/red one would go well with my touring set up. I very well may order one as I could use a new jersey.

Looked at the sizing chart. Do you know how Castelli jerseys fit? I imagine they are on the tight side. Worried that a 2XL might be a bit snug for my broad shoulders.

I don't wear Jersey's, but as jerseys go those aren't terribly offensive. Interesting cause.

No back view of the jersey? I expect that level of unprofessionalism from a junk jersey vendor on Amazon, not Castelli. I need to know how visible I am to cars coming up from behind.

Advocatus,
For those not in the know Slick Leonard was the Pacers announcer, as well as the ABA Indianapolis team that preceded them. His highly recognized "Boom Baby" was when the players would hit from behind the three point line, and he would scream "Boom Baby" into the microphone. Reggie Miller got to hear it a lot. A great cause and a great looking jersey with a history behind it. Thanks for posting it! Smiles, MH
