The Brooklyn Nets Will Pay Homage to The Notorious B.I.G. By Having a Coogi-Style Jersey

Spread love it’s the Brooklyn way.

In a couple of weeks, Nike will officially unveil the “City Edition” jerseys for all NBA teams. However, there have already been some leaks.

We already saw that the Minnesota Timberwolves will be paying homage to Prince with their Jersey; while the Los Angeles Lakers will be honoring the great Magic Johnson with their uniform.

The latest “City Edition” jersey to leak is The Brooklyn Nets’. The team will be honoring Brooklyn legend The Notorious B.I.G. with their “City Edition.” Nets beat writer Anthony Puccio ‏tweeted out a sneak peek of the jersey.

What’s cool is that the uniform features a Coogi-style outline on the jersey. (If you’re not aware, Biggie single-handly put the sweater brand on the map in the ’90s.)
