The NBA Jersey Wars have started all over again on social media, with teams every day unveiling the 2019 City Edition of their uniforms.
Well, Thursday night, The Brooklyn Nets joined the list of teams repping their city. The Nets held a special event in Brooklyn with the big reveal by Nets center DeAndre Jordan rocking a brand-new white jersey, but this year’s update came with a little surprise.
The Nets call their jersey “The Brooklyn Camo,” because it is accented with trim that mimics the iconic colors of the Coogie sweater made popular by the Notorious B.I.G. But the latest twist, took it one step further: Instead of the words “Brooklyn” across the chest, the new shirts are donning the word “Bed-Stuy!”
Folks already are clamoring to get their limited edition jersey, before they’re all gone and, hopefully, become a collector’s item.
But also according to twitter, not everyone is happy about the Bed-Stuy focus or about about featuring a neighborhood at all for that matter– particularly Nets fans from other parts of the city.
So why not start with Bed-Stuy?
