It’s hard to predict what sort of year the Nets will have in their inaugural 2012-13 Brooklyn campaign, but this much is for certain: the squad will definitely look good.
On Monday, several days after their logo leaked out on the web and everyone already saw it, the Nets officially unveiled their brand new colors, insignias and other interesting nuggets of information at a little shindig across the street from their soon-to-be-completed Barclays Center arena. According to Sports Illustrated, Avery Johnson, Brook Lopez, Bruce Ratner and Billy King were among the dignitaries present at the big debut.
So what does the new design look like? All black (and white) everything, of course.
The formerly red, white and blue-sporting Nets will now step out as the lone team in the NBA wearing just black and white.
Here's the logo and color scheme designed for the team by minority owner, Jay-Z:
Jerseys aren’t out yet, but presumably they’ll look something like the rest of the stuff posted above.
We can now safely say that the Brooklyn Nets will be amongst the league’s coolest looking teams. Unfortunately, you don’t get a ring for that. If the squad doesn’t do something big (e.g. bring in Dwight Howard and pray he gets healthy) at some point soon, then all this hoopla over new colors, gear and whatever else will get old really quickly.
