Are you a big Brooklyn Nets fan? (Probably.) Do you have enough Brooklyn Nets merchandise around your house? (Probably not.) Does this sound like a paid advertisement? (It’s not. I’m just really excited.)
Feast your eyes on what’s suddenly become my favorite handmade Brooklyn Nets gift ever.
These Brooklyn Nets matryoshka dolls, better known as nesting dolls, are on sale on Etsy for $59.90 and pretty much everything I’ve ever wanted in a Brooklyn Nets gift. Shout out to Russian culture? Check. A recognition by Russian doll makers that Andray Blatche and Brook Lopez succeeded together? Check. A tiny Andray Blatche? All the checks.
If I have any criticism, it’s that the faces are a little weird. Brook Lopez looks more like animated G.I. Joe than himself. Maybe really hard cheekbones are a Russian thing. They did nail Joe Johnson’s wistful eyes, though.
