Dodgers News: Brooklyn Nets Pay Tribute To Brooklyn Dodgers

The Brooklyn Dodgers played their final season at Ebbets Field in 1957 and until last season, there wasn’t a professional team in the most populous borough of New York.

With the the help of rapper Jay-Z, the New Jersey Nets became the Brooklyn Nets with Barclays Center paying homage to the home of the Brooklyn Dodgers with a flagpole outside the arena. While Ebbets Field was demolished just three years after the Dodgers moved to Los Angeles, the organization always pays tribute to its roots.

However, according to Darren Rovell of ESPN.com, the Nets will wear alternate jerseys to pay tribute to the Brooklyn Dodgers:

Sources told ESPN.com that the Nets will first wear the blue and grey sleeved jerseys for the game against the Boston Celtics on March 21 and will wear them for four other games, to be called “Brooklyn Blue Nights,” before the season is over.

It’s a very cool tribute by the Nets and it plays into the NBA’s shifting trend to have its teams wearing sleeved jerseys. Here’s Nets guard Joe Johnson sporting the jersey:

Nicely done, Prokhorov.
