    ==SECTION 02: INTRODUCTION==
    ============================
    
    Welcome to the NBA 2K12 Jersey Guide! This started out as a personal project to
    document all of the cool ABA throwbacks in this excellent game, but as the
    guide started to expand I figured it might be a good idea to share this info
    with anyone who is interested. I hope you find it useful.
    
    NOTE: Around Christmas 2011, a roster update was released that unlocked the
    remaining alternate jerseys. To my knowledge these are all of the jerseys
    available in the game, and there will not be another update.

    ==SECTION 04: ABA THROWBACK JERSEYS==
    =====================================
    
    What is the ABA? The ABA is the American Basketball Association, a pro league
    that ran from 1967 through 1976 and fostered such future NBA legends as George
    Gervin and Julius Erving. The league's influence on the NBA is undeniable, and
    it's great to see fitting tribute paid in NBA 2K12.
    
    Four modern-day NBA teams got their start in the ABA: Denver Nuggets, Indiana
    Pacers, San Antonio Spurs and New Jersey (New York) Nets.
    
    Here's a fantastic site for more info on the ABA: www.remembertheaba.com
    
    Let's say you want to cut right to the chase and check out all of the classic
    ABA throwbacks, or maybe even host an old-school ABA game (be sure to use the
    "payrespect" code for the ABA b-ball!). Here are the jerseys that will get you
    started:
    
     - Charlotte Bobcats ('71-'74 Carolina Cougars)
     - Denver Nuggets ('67-'71 Denver Rockets*, '75-76 Nuggets)
     - Indiana Pacers ('67-'68 Pacers*, '69-'71 Pacers*, '71-'74 Pacers)
     - Los Angeles Clippers ('68-'70 Los Angeles Stars)
     - Memphis Grizzlies ('72-'74 Memphis Tams)
     - Miami Heat ('70-'72 Miami Floridians)
     - Minnesota Timberwolves ('67-'68 Minnesota Muskies)
     - New Jersey Nets ('72-'76 New York Nets)
     - San Antonio Spurs ('73-'76 Spurs, '71-'72 Dallas Chaparrals)
    
    * Not listed as an ABA jersey in the game, but it is close enough.
    
    All ABA jerseys can have the original ABA logo stitched on the back of the
    neck, you can spot them easily in Instant Replay.
