Even in one of the most surreal seasons in NBA history, the New York Knicks are still finding ways to remind us that they’re the Knicks.
One such reminder came early in Saturday’s game against the Philadelphia 76ers, in which two players — Mitchell Robinson and Reggie Bullock — took the floor wearing the No. 23.
It didn’t take long to figure out what happened. Robinson usually wears No. 23. Bullock usually wears No. 25. Bullock accidentally got the wrong jersey number, on his back at least.
Reggie Bullock, No. 25 on the Knicks if you're looking at the front of the jersey.

Overall, not the best start for the Knicks’ much-maligned City Edition uniforms. It isn’t quite the Natinals, but still a strong addition to the saga of jersey mistakes.
Bullock took the whole incident in good enough humor, though he was forced to change jerseys once the error became apparent.
