Later tonight, the Brooklyn Nets/Miami Heat game will be the first NBA game in a long time where players have nicknames on the back of the jerseys.
As some of the rest of the Nets nickname jerseys have trickled out over the Interwebs, Brooklyn guard Tyshawn Taylor decided to try and get some more Instagram followers with his nickname:
"@tee_y " — gunna be on the back of my jersey tonight
— tyshawn taylor (@tyshawntaylor) January 10, 2014
Currently, Taylor’s Instagram account has 31,360 followers and I think (unless he doesn’t play), he’ll get some more later tonight.
UPDATE: Here is an image of Taylor’s nickname jersey:
