Nets Comically Spoil Jewish Night With T-Shirt Misspelling


brook-lopezFred Kerber reports for the NY Post: Brooklyn, NY – The Nets celebrated Hanukkah with Jewish Heritage Night Thursday against the Sixers offering T-shirts with the words “Represent Brooklyn” in Hebrew. Only the “Brooklyn” part, in Hebrew, was misspelled, an error spotted on the team’s official Twitter account. The Nets moved quickly to rectify the goof.

“We are sorry for the T-shirt mistake. It’s been rectified. We are looking forward to a great game on Jewish Heritage Night,” the team tweeted.

Shirts with the proper spelling were on sale at the team’s store by gametime.



  1. They may have spelled Brooklyn wrong, but that is a transliteration anyway. However, using a standard מ instead of a (ם(מ סופית is a bigger problem.
