It happened once. Then, two days later, it happened again. Scrawled across the screen, the word "Supreme," in its signature Futura Bold Italic font, barging into an NBA game, minus the usual leaguewide deal that accompanies just about every other logo seen on or around an NBA court.

Kelly Oubre Jr. did it first. The 22-year-old Washington Wizards forward known across social media as "Wave Papi" took the floor at the Barclays Center against the Brooklyn Nets with a red Supreme shooting sleeve pulled up over his right knee. When the Wizards went to the locker room at halftime, one of the team's trainers told him to switch out the sleeve—a cease-and-desist of sorts. Oubre obliged, "no questions asked," though he was a bit perplexed about having to remove an athletic accessory that also featured the NBA and Nike logos.

"They shouldn't have sold it to me or they shouldn't have dropped it if we can't wear it and it has an NBA logo on it, because I play in the NBA, right?" he said after the Wizards' 107-96 win. "So I should be able to wear anything that has the logo of what I represent. So I don't really understand the movement behind that.

"But it's just something wavy, honestly. I don't know if it's too wavy for them, but I was just having fun, man."

JR Smith received no such locker room reprimand from Cleveland Cavaliers staff when he sported a black Supreme sleeve on his left arm on national TV against the Los Angeles Lakers two days later on Dec. 14. He did, however, hear about it from the league office later.
