On Monday, the Philadelphia 76ers made history by becoming the first NBA team to have advertisements on their jerseys, as the team will feature a StubHub patch on their uniforms next season.

Unsurprisingly, the announcement was met with a chorus of reactions online ranging from praise of Philly’s smart business savvy, to complete meltdowns saying that the small patch has ruined basketball as we know it. The reality is, it was only a matter of time before we started seeing ads on jerseys pop up after NBA commissioner Adam Silver approved the idea last month.

Nevertheless, the internet had plenty to say once the announcement was made.
