NEW YORK (AP) — The apparel manufacturer Coogi has released a whole-court press from the Brooklyn Nets above a Infamous B.I.G.-influenced jersey.
The New York Situations states a special version of the team’s jersey is at the middle of a copyright lawsuit from the Nets, the Countrywide Basketball Affiliation and Nike.
Coogi is intensely linked with the late rapper, whose true identify was Christopher Wallace. He referenced Coogi in some of his music, like the hit “Hypnotize.”
The company states a multicolored stripe sample termed “Brooklyn Camo” on the Nike-produced “City Version” jersey copies its styles.
The lawsuit states the quantity of the alleged damages would be “set up at trial.”
NBA spokesman Mike Bass states the lawsuit has “no advantage in anyway.”
The Nets and Nike declined to remark.
