Brooklyn Nets part owner Jay-Z took to the stage tonight to perform at the inaugural event at Brooklyn’s new Barclays Center wearing the new jersey of the Brooklyn Nets.
This is our first official glimpse of what the Nets will be wearing on the court when their first season in NYC gets underway next month.
Jay-Z, so far, has only shown us the road jersey, and as expected it is a very simple design. Black base with BROOKLYN arched across the front in white.
Around the collar and arms we see a thick white stripe on the inside and a thin white stripe on the outside separated by a thin black stripe. A single white stripe goes up either side of the jersey.
The home jersey is expected to be a straight flip of the colours, they will not read NETS as both home and roads were announced would feature BROOKLYN above the player number.
Brooklyn will play their first pre-season game on October 13th when they take on the Philadelphia 76ers in Atlantic City, NJ. They will make their regular season debut during Game 7 of the World Series – November 1st against the Knicks.
