It’s a good thing Jay-Z got to unveil these jerseys all on his own – with none of the players around or any of the other front office employees. For one how else would we ever know that he had any association with the franchise? And do the Nets even have any other players? I’m fairly certain that Jay-Z is playing all 5 positions once the season starts in November.
Like the logo package, the uniforms are very simple. Both jerseys feature just two colours – black and white with one colour name and numbers
Around the collar and around the arms are two white stripes, the inner thicker than the outer, separated by a thin black stripe, the adidas logo will not be worn by the players and only appears on replicas sold to fans
The BROOKLYN script, on both the home and roads, have a raised inner-stripe of the same colour as the script
Down the sides of the jersey are a single stripe with a herringbone pattern – similar to their home court design
Above the player names on the back of the jersey is the Nets’ secondary logo, a B in a basketball
Player numbers are thin and sans serif, similar in style to the BROOKLYN script across the jersey front
As for the shorts, it’s a continuation of the side stripe with the primary logo (sans “BROOKLYN” script below) at the bottom
As mentioned earlier, the jerseys are already available for sale at NBA.com.
How do you feel about the new look?
