AUDIO: NBA Store Says You Can Buy A ‘KillCops’ Jersey

UPDATE: The NBA no longer allows people to buy “KillCops” and “F**kPolice” (uncensored) jerseys.

The NBA store was momentarily willing to sell a “KillCops” jersey.

After finding out I couldn’t buy a “FreeHongKong” jersey from the NBA store’s website, I called and asked to get one. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

The NBA wouldn’t sell me a custom Houston Rockets jersey with “FreeHongKong” on the back. The reason why is likely tied to the fact that the league is incredibly cozy with the Chinese dictatorship.

When asked if I could get “Kill Cops,” the sales attendant said stuff with spaces didn’t work. When I asked for “KillCops,” the sales attendant was more than willing to oblige.

You can listen to the audio below.

You can listen to the full audio of the call below.

Eventually, the woman (or somebody else listening) realized what was going on, and the system for customization all of a sudden stopped working.

She said I could pick something else, but “KillCops” would no longer work. The reason? Possibly high call volume!

The NBA has a lot of questions to answer!
