Nice purse, rook

By Mike Mazzeo

“Yes, a purse. I carry a purse!” -- Jerry Seinfeld

But unlike Seinfeld, MarShon Brooks isn’t carrying a European carryall.

He’s carrying a purse -- or as Deron Williams referred to it on Twitter, “his new Berkin bag!!!

All part of a little rookie hazing. Embarrassing and harsh, no doubt.

“Lol it's war out here now” Brooks tweeted.

The Nets 23-year-old shooting guard is shooting just 39.9 percent in the month of March, so perhaps this is the least of his concerns.
