XtremeMac today announced a new licensing partnership with the National Basketball Association and the debut of NBA Iconz cases for iPod and iPod nano. The new NBA Iconz cases personalize and protect the iPod while spotlighting some of the NBA’s most popular teams and players. Iconz feature full color team or player graphics on the front and a translucent back. Among the NBA cases currently available are: iPod with video (Philadelphia 76ers, Los Angeles Lakers, and Miami Heat); and iPod nano: Boston Celtics, Chicago Bulls, Detroit Pistons, Los Angeles Lakers, Dwayne Wade (Miami), and LeBron James (Cleveland). The company says more teams and players are on the way for both iPod models. NBA Iconz cases are only available for a limited time, priced at US$24.95 for the nano and $29.95 for the iPod with video. All NBA Iconz cases will begin shipping in mid-January.
