As part of a cross-promotional campaign between the Brooklyn Nets and Italian soccer team Juventus FC, players of the Nets recently received signed Juventus kits.
The team’s official Twitter page shared some photos of the gifts, and Nets players D’Angelo Russell, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, and Jared Dudley all looked delighted to have been on the receiving end of the awesome merch:

The Nest are currently nowhere near the success Juventus has achieved thus far this season, with the football club currently dominating the Italian domestic league, Serie A, thanks in large part to the summer arrival of one of the best footballers in the game today, Cristiano Ronaldo. Nonetheless, Brooklyn has been able to hold its own for the early part of the NBA season.
The Nets are currently 8-18 and sitting at the 11th spot in the Eastern Conference. At this early point in the season, they are just four games outside the playoff picture. They have lost eight in a row, though, including a heartbreaking loss against the Oklahoma City Thunder earlier this week in which they blew a massive lead. There have been plenty of close losses so far this campaign.
If the Nets are still hoping for a better result this year compared to previous seasons, they better get back to winning ways as soon as possible.
