Brooklyn Nets New Black and White Logo: The Brooklyn Nets are open for business. The team’s formal attire will be black and white. The NEW LOGO for the Brooklyn Nets designed by part owner of the team Jay-Z. Jigga ?
The team which will be relocated from NJ to Brooklyn next season just released the new colorless logo … which is already being hailed as “the new badge for Brooklyn.”
The Nets began settling into their new neighborhood Monday, unveiling new colors and logos at a sporting goods store on Flatbush Avenue, across the street from its soon-to-be-completed home arena, the $1 billion Barclays Center.
“Hello Brooklyn,’” center Brook Lopez said. “I’ve been waiting a long time to say that. It’s very exciting.”
Lopez was joined by coach Avery Johnson, General Manager Billy King, Bruce Ratner, the real estate developer and minority owner who was the catalyst behind the team’s relocation, and Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz.
“We’ve been talking about it, but now the reality is we are the Brooklyn Nets,” King said. “The arena is on schedule. It’s going to be one of the best arenas in the league.”
The Nets will have a black-and-white color scheme, which pays homage to the old New York subway signage system.
The Nets will have a pair of primary logos. The first features a shield and the name “NETS” accompanied by the letter “B” inside a basketball and “BROOKLYN” underneath. The second features the letter “B” inside a basketball encircled by “BROOKLYN NEW YORK.”
The Nets will move into the $1 billion arena at the start of the 2012-13 season.
“We’ve been waiting a long time for this,” CEO Brett Yormark said. “The Brooklyn Nets are finally part of the conversation.”
