It looks like some new WNBA Nike gear is incoming.
Images of new edition jerseys for sale at Dick's Sporting Goods locations have made the rounds on social media in recent days. Aryeh Schwartz of WNBA coverage site Winsidr and Khristina Williams of Girls Talk Sports TV have been sharing images of the new gear on Twitter from fans who have found the leaked jerseys at local stores.

But there appears to be problem — with one prominent player's jersey at least.
Excited fans have found jerseys of Washington Mystics star Elena Delle Donne and shared images of the front and the back. And there's a typo. In her name.

Delle Donne is not hyphenated. But it is on some examples of two different jersey editions.
A six-time All-Star, two-time league MVP and a 2019 WNBA champion, Delle Donne is one of the game's most prominent players. That Nike didn't get her name correct on the jerseys didn't sit right with Mystics teammate Natasha Cloud.
We can’t have nothing🙈 and who the hell hyphenated dellas last name!? Y’all would never see a mistake like that to a franchise player on the men’s side. DO BETTER.

The WNBA is slated to tip off its 25th anniversary season this year. Here's guessing those jerseys get corrected in time for Delle Donne's return to the court after she opted out of the WNBA bubble.
