Why not? Soccer/football jerseys sell like hotcakes and if I'm not mistaken Barcelona is the only team which doesn't have commercial logos on their jersey. The whole NBA is based around marketing. They all have Nike sneakers and they all drink Gatorade during timeouts. It wouldn't be a major shock to me if they suddenly started doing playing with ads on their uniforms.
