The Nets are holding a Jewish Heritage Night, but made a spelling error in Hebrew.
The Nets are celebrating Hanukkah by holding Jewish Heritage Night at the Barclays Center on Thursday night. They’ve got a whole bunch of Judaism-themed fun planned, including a halftime game between kids and Rabbis.
They’re also gonna be selling shirts that say “Represent Brooklyn” in Hebrew. There’s only one problem. The Hebrew is misspelled.
The Brooklyn Game spotted the error (before the team deleted the tweet), explaining that the Nets nailed the spelling of the first word (“מייצג ברוקלין” = “represent”) but the second word (“גציימ”) should actually read “מייצג.”
It’s just been that kind of season for the Nets.
