The Warriors are the defending NBA champions and just completed a record-breaking regular reason, so who wouldn't want to advertise their company on their uniforms?

That may be a reality for NBA teams starting in the 2017-2018 season.

The league will begin selling jersey sponsorships for a three-year trial, becoming the first of the Big Four sports leagues to put corporate logos on players' uniforms.

The patches will appear on the front left of the jersey and measure about 2.5 by 2.5 inches.

The NBA expects to make about $120 million to $180 million a year.
