MIAMI (AP) - LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett may soon wear uniforms unlike any other.
Some members of the Miami Heat have been told that the NBA is considering having them and the Brooklyn Nets wear ``nickname jerseys'' for at least one of their matchups this season.
Heat guard Ray Allen says he wants to wear ``Shuttlesworth'' as a nod to his character in the movie ``He Got Game.''
Allen says he thinks players ``will get a good kick out of it.''
The NBA has not announced the nickname-jersey plan, though some players have been aware of the notion for several weeks. They were asked to submit what names they would want to wear.
