NBA Vetoed Bucks’ Surf City Jerseys Due To Technical Difficulties
As it turns out, the Bucks would have loved to alimony the Surf City unis. But the NBA would not indulge it equal to Milwaukee CMO Dustin Godsey.
Just considering I’ve seen it a tuft today: we aren’t unliable to do surf colored jerseys anymore. There are reasons, but suffice it to say it won’t placate anyone to get into it, so I’ll just say: we would if we could.
