VIDEO: Nets’ DeAndre Jordan messes up wide-open lob in real Shaqtin’ A Fool contender

When one-time All-Star center DeAndre Jordan linked up with buddies Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving to sign with the Brooklyn Nets, he didn’t think it’d go like this.

The 31-year-old big man couldn’t handle a pass from Nets teammate Garrett Temple, ruining a perfect alley-oop attempt against the visiting Sacramento Kings on Friday night.

The Nets recently unveiled their “City Edition” jersey, which features last year’s breakout uniform element in the Notorious B.I.G.-inspired Coogi lining to the jersey. This time, however, their “Statement Edition” font has “Bed-Stuy” — Biggie Smalls’ neighborhood across the chest.

Jordan is going to have to do better than that to impress his new Nets fans contingent from Brooklyn, and he might have been clowned out of the park if he missed a lob like that one from Temple in a Brooklyn playground.
