Paul McCartney, Nets fans in London go crazy over t-shirts (GIF)


On Thursday afternoon, the Brooklyn Nets and Atlanta Hawks squared off at the O2 Arena in London, England.

The Nets, behind 29 points from Joe Johnson, won the game with relative ease 127-110.

Paul McCartney attended the game with his daughter’s family, who were decked out in Nets’ gear and badly wanted a t-shirt. You can see all of the family going for a t-shirt when McCartney stands up, makes a strange face and goes after a shirt himself. You can see Nets’ big man Reggie Evans standing just in front of the group and he obviously thinks the entire event is quite hilarious, because, well, it is.

Of course, this isn’t the first time McCartney has expressed his desire to win a Nets’ t-shirt. Earlier in the season, McCartney attended a Nets game and really went after a shirt again. McCartney did not get a shirt the first time around and it doesn’t look like he was able to catch one this time either.

As for the game, the Nets’ offense played one of their most complete games of the season and apparently gave their owner hope for the rest of the season.
