The Brooklyn Nets today revealed the design for five "alternative jersey uniforms" that they will wear this season.

As the picture of Joe Johnson shows, the jerseys are blue and grey as the Nets pay homage to the the Brooklyn Dodgers, the baseball franchise which left the borough in 1957.

The Jersey will first be worn agains the Boston Celtics on March 21 and then again on March 28,  April 4, 11, and 15 - the final home game of the regular season.

The short sleeves are back (as is the current trend it seems), and, as reported by ESPN's Darren Rovell, they are to be worn on "Brooklyn Blue Nights".

The Brooklynettes dance team will pay tribute to Brooklyn's baseball heritage on those nights also

The jerseys will retail for anywhere ranging from $50 to $110.

Netsdaily is also reporting that Bruce Ratnerm when was was principal owner of the Nets, contacted the LA Dodgers about using the 'Dodgers' as a team name for the basketball team.

This idea was quickly scrapped with Los Angeles unwilling to continue discussions.
