The Perfect Companies For Each NBA Teams' New Jerseys

In April, the NBA Board of Governors approved the selling of ad space on NBA jerseys.

For a three-year period, beginning with the 2017-18 season, teams can feature corporate logos on their jerseys, similar to the sponsorships seen on soccer uniforms.

The difference, however, is the ads won't be as large. The NBA approved 2.5-inch-by-2.5.-inch logos that can be displayed on the shoulders of jerseys.

According to reports, the Philadelphia 76ers just became the first team in the league to officially sell ad space on a jersey. At the beginning of the 2017-18 NBA season, the Sixers will reportedly have the StubHub logo on each player's jersey.

Reports suggest the deal between the Sixers and StubHub is for three years at $5 million per.

Having the 76ers rep StubHub is all well and good, but we came up with a more appropriate sponsor match for Philly, and every other team for that matter.

Here are the companies we think perfectly match each NBA team.
