Brooklyn Nets going old school. Like short-shorts old school. (VIDEO)

Nov 7, 2013, 12:52 PM EDT

I love that Deron Williams, Paul Pierce, Shaun Livingston and other Nets were down with doing this.

They teamed up with FunnyorDie.com for a comedy video where they go old school — old short shorts, afros, Chuck Taylor All Stars. The whole 1950s package (well, maybe not the afros, but aren’t those really timeless?). Classic.

And nothing is worse than the shorts. Nothing.

Hat tip to SLAM.

    “…and other Nets…”

    It was only one other guy. Was it really that difficult to just write Tyshawn Taylor’s name?

    That’s a funny video but Deron Williams is anti-funny. He obviously just took 90 seconds out of his day to spit out those lines and got back to combing his hair over his bald spot.

    Well I must be dead because that wasn’t funny.

    You know, the video was cool up to 55 second mark. And then what happened next bugged me so much that I was compelled to make a damn account to leave this comment.

    Reverse racism. Plain and simple.

    If the roles were reversed and it was a couple of “white” guys saying stuff about “black” guys in regards to their inadequate function in a certain activity, then it would be deemed as racist and this video would be on CNN and Fox. But its not, so its cool to just let it slide and avoid the elephant in the room. Double standards and hypocrisy. It’s not right either way, at all.

    And for the record I’m not Caucasian or African American. I’m just a person. But then again that shouldn’t matter now, should it?

    If those were white guys joking about black guys like that, people would say its racist..
