Brooklyn Nets fans who are looking to get their hands on a Kyrie Irving jersey can do so just by going to one of the team's first games of the 2019-20 season.

The Nets announced Saturday they will hand out free replica Irving jerseys to the first 10,000 people to walk through the doors at Barclays Center for their game against the New York Knicks on Friday, Oct. 25:

That will mark the team's second contest of the season, as Brooklyn will begin its campaign by hosting the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday, Oct. 23.

Irving's signing represented one of the NBA's biggest offseason moves. Adding Irving and two-time Finals MVP Kevin Durant made the Nets one of the Association's most intriguing teams, though they'll likely have to wait until 2020-21 for Durant to return from a ruptured Achilles.


The Sports Illustrated Top 100 Players of the NBA is out, and list curator Rob Mahoney joins The Full 48 with Howard Beck to discuss the brand new #1, Giannis Antetokounmpo, why it’s not LeBron, how Kevin Durant factored into this season’s list, the Kyrie Irving effect, James Harden vs Steph Curry, and why the Charlotte Hornets have no players in the Top 100.
