2. Size Tag at the bottom right
The font on size tag is suppose be a skinny font. The tag on the fake ones usually have a bigger font.
3. NBA tag
Usually the fake jersey’s NBA tag on bottom right are pointing towards the backside if you lift the jersey horizontally. The real ones are pointing towards front of the jersey.
4. Team Logo on the Size Tag
The team logo should be the same height as the NBA logo next to it.

Everything on an authentic Adidas NBA swingman jersey should be spot on. The lettering and stitching frays easily on the fake jersey.
