Advertising might make the world go ’round, but for Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce of the Brooklyn Nets, it apparently might do much more.

Both Garnett and Pierce recently caught the irritation of fellow NBA foes LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, who questioned why they didn’t catch slack for all but forcing a trade to the Brooklyn Nets. Meanwhile, their friend and current teammate, Ray Allen, who left Boston after the 2011-2012 season caught major heat for ‘ring chasing’ with the Miami Heat.

The New York Post ran a story on the subject, though, apparently didn’t see anything odd about the layout which featured the column to the right while a picture of Garnett and Pierce holding their new uniforms was positioned to the left. No big deal, right? Well, exactly (and I mean exactly) under the picture of the newest Nets was the script ‘I used to have erectile dysfunction’, which then morphs into an advertisement for a local clinic that can help men who are suffering from, well, issues.
