Jarrett Jack says sleeved jerseys should be tailor-made

Like just about everyone, Cleveland Cavaliers guard Jarrett Jack is not a fan of the NBA’s sleeved jerseys. Unlike all the other complainers, though, Jack actually has a solution.

Here’s what Jack recently told the Cleveland Plain Dealer about the fashion atrocities:

“We’re like the Beach Police. You know those police who are on the beach with those bikes? They’ve got those little shirts with the shorts? That’s what we look like. Like we about to give somebody a citation.”

According to Jack, the sleeves don’t work because players, even players who are the same height, don’t all have uniform — pun kinda intended — arm sizes. The solution? Have the jerseys be tailor-made so they fit each individual player:

“It wouldn’t take long. If you went and got everybody’s measurements, it’d take five minutes. And you made those jerseys specific to everybody’s exact needs, it’d save everyone headaches.”

While I’m all for Jack’s reasonable solution, it’s hard not to side with Portland center Robing Lopez’s burn-’em-all idea:

Adam Silver, please make the sleeved jerseys go away.
