Let the name game begin.
The Nets and Heat played Friday night's game in Brooklyn with new jerseys with nicknames on the back.
Some were obvious, like "King James" for LeBron James and "D. Wade" for Dwyane Wade, but others weren't so straightforward. For instance, Michael Beasley got "B Easy" and Mario Chalmers was wearing "Rio."
