First it was the logo, which even Raptors fans thought was too similar to the Nets. And who could blame them?
Then it was the uniforms... black-and-while with basic block lettering. Sound familiar? But it was topped off when Drake, the Raptors "ambassador," took to the stage, wearing the most Nets-like of the Raptors new uniform jerseys.
It was all too much for Anthony Puccio of the ND staff.

ELone, a long-time season ticket holder, had his fun, too.

And we may have snarked just a bit, as well...
Raptors marketing guy: "Hey, we got new B&W jerseys with block lettering. Why don't we get a hip hop guy to introduce them at a concert!"— NetsDaily.com (@NetsDaily) August 4, 2015
But who knew the Nets official account would do the same with a reminder of how the Nets introduced THEIR new jersey back in 2012.

Of course it wasn't the first time the Nets had dissed Drake.

And remember, Drake, Jay-Z is NOT Meek Mill.
