Nets take funny shot at ESPN over broadcast blunder

It’s safe to say that ESPN’s broadcast mishap on Wednesday night failed to escape the watchful eye of the Brooklyn Nets social media team.

During a game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the San Antonio Spurs, the network inexplicably cut to commercial at the worst possible time, just as Lakers guard Josh Hart was going up for a potential buzzer-beating layup with the game tied at 108. The cutaway only lasted for less than two seconds, but it was still an extremely embarrassing blunder nevertheless. Take a look:

On Thursday, the Nets dropped a funny reference to the on-air disaster during a game against the Milwaukee Bucks. They edited a clip of D’Angelo Russell driving to the rim and interrupted it with the exact same commercial cutaway.

At 25-53 on the year and without possession of their 2018 first-round draft pick, it’s hard to blame the Nets for having a bit of fun at ESPN’s expense as the season winds down. After all, taking shots at the Worldwide Leader appears to be quite fashionable in the basketball world these days.
