CHARLOTTE, N.C. – NBA Commissioner Adam Silver unveiled on Friday what the organization is calling “the NBA jersey of the future.”

The jersey can change the number and the name on the back of the garment. While the color of the jersey will remain the same, the instantaneous number-name transition could help if a favorite player changes teams.

Silver changed a Stephen Curry No. 30 jersey to a Michael Jordan No. 23 jersey.

The jersey reveal happened at the kick-off for the 2019 All-Star festivities this weekend in Charlotte, North Carolina, according to the Bleacher Report.
