With the league going in a new fashion direction this Christmas with the tight-sleeved game jerseys, you might think that some veterans could be disgruntled. Not Shane Battier. Battier, a veteran leader for the Miami Heat, joked today about the change, and you can rest assured, Heat fans: the new uniforms won’t affect Battier’s play at all — at least on the court.
