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.

    You think David Stern was an arrogant jerk?
    Why he was just laying the ground work for screwing up the league with our “Anything for a buck” mentality!

    I love this it’s the best thing they’ve done so far. Jackie and Branch were great and deserve to be honored.
