Black stripe on jerseys

I notice while watching basketball that some of the teams’ uniforms have a black stripe on the top left part of their jersey. Why do they have that?

Its a memorial for a person closely affiliated with the team. Similar to a foolball team wearing a patch or sticker to commemorate the death of a coach, player or owner.

One of the most apt typos I have ever seen.

“Don’t take life too serious, son – it ain’t nohow permanent.”
