If you have been wondering why the Bulls, Bobcats and Nuggets have been wearing green uniforms during the past few days like I have, here is your answer. No, it's not that they were really late getting the memo about St. Patrick's Day. It's all part of the NBA's Green Week 2009, which includes a number of activities, with the most noticeable (by the viewer) being the green uniforms.
Members of Chicago, Charlotte and Denver will also wear socks made of 45 percent organic cotton during select home games from April 2nd - April 10th. Adidas is also outfitting players with 100 percent organic cotton shooting shirts, featuring the NBA Green logo. Other events include fundraisers, team community events and raffles.
