With the Brooklyn Nets in London for the week to take on the Atlanta Hawks on Thursday, there's much more to the trip than simply playing a basketball game overseas. Much of the trip will consist of the team acting as league ambassadors to the growing European market. And with that, along with fan meet and greets, comes photo/media ops and an opportunity for the Nets to swap custom jerseys with London's beloved Chelsea Football Club.
Take a look at the photos:

So, that Kevin Garnett photo of him sitting down is pretty great.
