Statue of Liberty on Las Vegas Strip dons Aces jersey — VIDEO

Lady Liberty at New York-New York has traded her hockey sweater for a basketball jersey.

With the Golden Knights now in the offseason, the Statue of Liberty has switched allegiances for the Las Vegas Aces’ inaugural season, donning a no. 18 Aces jersey.

The Aces went as far as to “sign” Lady Liberty to an honorary contract, complete with a WNBA player card.
