Yesterday, The Brooklyn Nets unveiled their 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. The Nets, who have been playing in New Jersey since 1977, are leaving their red, white, and blue look behind as they move across the Hudson. The Nets will be the only team in the NBA with black and white as its only primary colors.
The logo and color scheme were designed by part owner Jay-Z and inspired by the New York City Transit Authority subway signs from 1957. Hopefully the Nets' new colors can translate to some actual wins on the basketball court.
