My order of two shirts arrived today — I think they are pretty decent quality for what they are. Hope a lot of folks participate in this and show support to the players, would be really cool to see EBA full of these for a blackout night.
How accurate are the sizes?

Nice shirts! Giving one to my niece so she can rock it when she goes back to the Philippines

Gave my XL to her as well for her brother. Looks like another order is in the works LOL! Saw the Team shirt option is no more so I need to select a player, which is the hardest part in this :)

will youth sizes eventually be added?

Or anyone know if the small unisex or womens Xs shirts are small enough for a first grader?

This will hurt potential NIL Deals


Under Armour
Under Armour reported $1.35 billion in first-quarter revenue, just slightly above analysts’ estimates of $1.34 billion.
The company’s revenue was partially attributed to higher prices. Under Armour recorded $7.7 million in net income — a steep drop from last year’s $59.2 million — and just $34.5 million in operating income, compared to the $121.2 million reported the same period the year prior.
  • Wholesale revenue increased 3% to $792 million.
  • Direct-to-consumer revenue dropped 7% to $521 million mainly due to an 8% decline in owned-and-operated revenue.
  • Ecommerce revenue, which represented 39% of the quarter’s direct-to-consumer business, fell 6%.
Footwear revenue increased 1% to $347 million, apparel dipped 1% to $868 million, and accessories dropped 13% to $97 million.
Under Armour’s selling, general, and administrative expenses increased 9% to $596 million, including legal expenses.
The former UCLA sponsor settled a lawsuit with the school at the end of May that saw Under Armour shell out $67.5 million. UCLA had accused Under Armour in 2020 of illegally ending their 15-year, $280 million agreement.

Ominous Outlook​

The retailer cut its profit forecast for the fiscal year, primarily due to more promotions on athletic apparel cutting into margins.
Under Armour still expects revenue growth of 5% to 7%, but operating income is now projected to reach $300 to $325 million, a notable decline from the previous range of $375 million to $400 million.

Kentucky's Tshiebwe cashes in

While the rest of his teammates are soaking up the sun on a team trip to paradise, Kentucky’s Congolese basketball star Oscar Tshiebwe is packing an all-out NIL blitz into one week in the Bahamas.

Why? The reigning national player of the year is restricted in what he can do stateside on a student visa. So with the program’s blessing, he took things international. The Athletic’s Kyle Tucker has the incredible details of Tshiebwe’s business trip:
  • He has NIL obligations every day, including photoshoots, ad reads and merchandise signings and did promotional work for four different companies before he even unpacked his suitcase on day one.

  • He has about 2,000 Topps trading cards and a stack of other memorabilia in his hotel room that he’ll have to sign.

  • Tshiebwe stands to make about $500,000 in seven days — bringing his total NIL earnings to about $2.75 million, a source told Tucker.
Tshiebwe was able to make about $20,000 a month in apparel sales alone in the U.S. through a loophole. His first big purchase was a house for his mom. Now, he wants to use earnings to help thousands of kids in the Congo.

This type of trip, however, is a temporary holdover as Tshiebwe has applied to change his visa status to a type granted to international celebrities. But it's a microcosm of what could come — both for Tshiebwe and the rest of the big men eschewing the NBA Draft for lucrative college careers.

Oscar is the man and deserves every penny. I got my mom a Cameo from Oscar for her birthday. Even though I'm sure he's doing hundreds of them he killed it, went above and beyond and really made it special. Great dude, glad he's figuring out a way to get paid.
