Nets to unveil sleeved alternate jerseys

13 Comments

The sleeved jerseys are here to stay, and a few more teams will have alternate versions featuring them before the season is finished.

The Brooklyn Nets are the latest team to reveal their version, and the blue and grey color scheme is a nod to the city’s sports history.

From ESPN.com:

With their move to Brooklyn, the Nets got rid of blue from their color palette, but in a nod to the tradition of their new home, the team is set to unveil alternate jerseys in the familiar blue and grey from the Brooklyn Dodgers days.

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.

The design here is more basic than, say, that of the All-Star jerseys. But they do in fact accomplish their stated goal of looking like Dodgers road uniforms.

Joakim Noah kept his hands on DeMarcus Cousins after getting called for a foul, and that – and/or the Kings heading toward their third straight loss – agitated Cousins into pushing the Knicks center.

Remember, Cousins and Noah have a history.

Report: Kings forward Matt Barnes wanted for questioning after alleged New York nightclub fight

3 Comments

Matt Barnes infamously fought then-Knicks coach Derek Fisher for dating Barnes’ estranged wife, Gloria Govan. Barnes even bragged that violence is sometimes the answer.

His self-earned reputation won’t earn him the benefit of the doubt over an incident earlier today.

TMZ:

Sacramento Kings star Matt Barnes is wanted by NYPD for questioning after he allegedly choked a woman inside a nightclub early Monday morning — and TMZ Sports got video of him right after the incident.

Law enforcement sources tell us cops got a 911 call to Avenue Nightclub after midnight, reporting a man assaulting 2 women and another man. We’re told things got physical when Barnes allegedly choked one woman during an argument — and when 2 other people tried to intervene … he punched both of them.

In the video, Matt and a teammate — it appears to be DeMarcus Cousins — are talking about the fight. The teammate is clearly heard saying, “Matt hit the s*** out this ni***!”

Barnes was also arrested for domestic violence against Govan in 2011. But she said the incident was blown out of proportion, and the charges were dropped.

The Kings have already played at the Knicks and Nets, so Sacramento doesn’t return to New York this season.
