Nets Giving Away Celtics Jerseys

As long as the NBA has existed, teams with poor attendance have sold the visiting team as a main attraction. "See Larry Bird in Kansas City!" and so on. But the Nets are taking this to a new level.

New Jersey is promoting its 10-game ticket plans by offering up five complimentary reversible jerseys. Unlike most reversibles, the Nets are only represented on one side of the kit. On the other side: LeBron, Kobe, Dwight, Dwyane or KG. Yes, the Nets are effectively giving away Cavs, Lakers, Magic, Heat and Celtics jerseys to ticket buyers. This is going to get really awkward if the Nets capture the eighth seed and face off against one of the East's Big Three.
