If you are a fan of the Sacramento Kings and high fashion, then this is your moment to enjoy the internet.
The Kings and New York Knicks face off Friday night in Sacramento, with the Kings wearing their City Edition uniforms. For Sacramento, that means wearing black uniforms with a touch of red and blue, a nod to the history of the franchise and previous team colors.
And what will the Knicks wear? According to Kings Twitter, it means donning this:
Look, not everyone appreciates fashion, and the Kings' Twitter account found an opening for Knicks slander before the game, taking a swipe at both New York and Louis Vuitton. To each their own.
Don't worry, Knicks fans, the Knicks on MSG Twitter account stood up for the fashion slander:

The Knicks' actual City Edition jerseys are a little less hefty, read "City Never Sleeps," and were made in a partnership with KITH:
The Kings continued to poke fun at New York throughout the game, and held on to win 103-94 -- and grab bragging rights.
