The NBA has rolled out plenty of interesting uniforms over the past two seasons, including the short sleeved monstrosities that have been heavily featured and nickname jerseys that we saw late last week.

However, the Brooklyn Nets may have the greatest custom uniforms, thanks to the folks from London-based soccer club Chelsea FC.

While the uniforms won’t be worn on the court, Chelsea welcomed the Nets to Brooklyn for their game against the Atlanta Hawks on Thursday with some custom Chelsea kits that were hanging in the locker room.

ESPN’s SportsCenter tweeted out a photo of the uniforms:

It would have been great to see the NBA players take the court with their soccer inspired jerseys, but getting a cool keepsake from your trip overseas is a pretty great consolation prize.
