A Knicks fan has created his own merchandise for Brooklynites who support the Knicks, but the NBA is not too pleased with it.

Mike Sorisi created a line of new hats, stickers and shirts with a logo that has the orange and blue Knick colors along with the graphic styling of the nets.

He says after he made his website for people to purchase the gear he was immediately contacted by the NBA.

For now, Sorisi has been forced to stop selling his merchandise.

He’s hoping the NBA will work with him to come up with a compromise.
