Six things that might have inspired the City Edition Mavs jersey



  1. A sleek Myspace font, complete with a picture of pimped out Spongebob.

  2. The GREEN TEA + ENERGY (NON CARBONATED) Monster energy drink, contrasted above.

  3. A paintball jersey that your friend Kyle used to wear to school, because he wanted everyone to know how X-TREME he gets on the weekends.

  4. An ambiguous non-NBA-sponsored jersey from the TJMaxx discount rack, which used to be $29.99, $19.99, $14.99 and $11.99, but is now $8.99, and still a few bucks too expensive.

  5. The custom spray-on t-shirt/tank top that every New England kid gets when he/she goes to Hampton Beach, which will thus be worn to every future trip to Hampton Beach, as if to say, been there, done that.

  6. Custom graffiti art by the kid in the back of your sophomore year geometry class who was at least 18 and on his second geometry go-around, who was actually pretty cool and willing to draw your last name in that font for free, though you had reservations about sitting with him because Mr. Buckley would tank your grade based solely on the stigma of association. Plus, one time, when your class was doing a math experiment with dry pasta, he dared a kid in your group to eat all the pasta in exchange for a free dime bag, and the kid actually ate the pasta, and after school they both went to the graffiti guy’s house to get the dime bag. So, in hindsight, he was an honorable guy who stuck to his word, but definitely failed geometry again.
