The "Made in America" festival in Philadelphia this weekend became a fashion statement for the Nets when the two biggest names on hand, Jay-Z and Beyonce', showed up in a leather Brooklyn Nets cap (him) and a Brooklyn Nets jersey (her). It didn't take long for other performers to pick up the cue and don caps, among them Mike G from Odd Future. Among the groups Jay-Z performed with in his Nets cap: Pearl Jam, which as every fourth-level Nets trivia expert knows was originally named "Mookie Blaylock."

Meanwhile, fashion mavens at the New York Post, in their "What's In and Out for the Fall," decrees that "Bragging about your seats at Madison Square Garden" is out; "Bragging about your seats at Barclays Center" is in.
