If you’ve miraculously avoided the internet for the last 24 hours, you may have missed out on its latest target of mass debate: an over-exposed photo of a dress that seems to be both white & gold and black & blue at the same time. There have been countless thoughtpieces, photoshop analyses, and scientific explanations regarding the “true” color of the dress — so many that it’s easier to simply say “Go Google ‘what color is the dress'” than to actually send you there — and the latest people to break it down are none other than the Brooklyn Nets, in a video posted to the team Facebook account.
After someone showed the photo to Nets rookie Cory Jefferson, it sparked a near team-wide debate:
To recap sides, from the video:
Team white-and-gold: Jerome Jordan, Markel Brown, Thaddeus Young.
Team black-and-blue: Cory Jefferson, Brook Lopez (although he wants to be clear that he sees “Blue & brown, actually”), Sergey Karasev, Deron Williams (who believes he’s being tricked).
As for me? I see both. Sorry.
The black-and-white Nets play the red Houston Rockets at 8:00 P.M. tonight in Houston.
