How tough is it to spell Kentucky?
Nike had a problem.
Their new LeBron James jerseys they sent to UK had it wrong on John Wall’s jersey. Initially, no one noticed. There was a photo shoot Wednesday morning with John Calipari, Patrick Patterson, DeMarcus Cousins, Eric Bledsoe for the cover of Slam magazine.
When they realized the error, Wall changed his shirt.
UK wanted to have some fun with True Blue fans, so Cal, on his birthday, via Twitter, sent out the picture. They wanted to see how long it would take for fans to notice the spelling mistake. UK was quickly slammed by e-mails pointing it out.
