Jersey of the year nominee. This dude is going hard in the paint.

jr-reid-hornets-jerseyMy boy @EliOppenheimer was kicking it at the pool in Orlando this weekend when he came across a hoopster rocking this JR Reid Hornets jersey. Mind. Blown.

There are a few things that make this random jersey so impressive. First off, it’s JR freaking Reid. Dude wasn’t even a member of the Charlotte Hornets NBA Jams team yet this dude is rocking his jersey. That’s hardcore. Next, if you were going to get a hoopsterific random jersey chances are it would probably be a Muggsy Bogues Hornets jersey (which is one of the more sought after jerseys for festival season which has caused the price of his jerseys to get a bit out of hand on eBay). Aside from rocking a Matt Geiger jersey this is about as good as it gets for the Charlotte Hornets. 

This has all the elements that we look for when evaluating the best random jerseys out there. This most certainly is a jersey of the year nominee.
