The Nets Couldn’t Find One Person In Brooklyn To Proofread This Shirt?

It's Jewish Heritage Night tonight for the Brooklyn Nets, and the Barclays Center is adorned with a giant menorah made of basketballs (cool -- see below), and other stuff. A big art of the event are these t-shirts, one of them being held up by Brook Lopez in the photo, that the Nets are distributing tonight. Well, not these t-shirts -- because these have a rather striking mistake.
Andy Katz of Fox Sports explains:
"It appears someone forgot at some point that Hebrew is written in the opposite direction of English, because the first word, which is supposed to say "Represent" — as in the Nets' slogan, "Represent Brooklyn" — is backwards, the equivalent of writing "Tneserper Brooklyn".
The Nets have apologized for the mistake and printed new shirts.
The Nets just lit the menorah made of basketballs, as they did in ancient times
