NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The Nets are paying tribute to their new home in Brooklyn with an alternate jersey set to be unveiled this season.
The sleeved V-neck top is a departure from the Nets’ redesigned look. The jersey is blue and gray instead of black and white, an obvious homage to baseball’s Brooklyn Dodgers.
Craig Carton of WFAN’s “Boomer & Carton” show is a fan of the alternate unis.
“The black and white is their thing,” Carton said Friday. “And when I heard that they were doing new jerseys, I go, ‘No, don’t.’ … And I like these.”
The alternates will be worn a total of five times this season, according to ESPN.
