Thanks to the magical world of pre-season basketball we got a preview of how the Brooklyn Nets will look on the court once their regular season schedule begins on November 1st.
The NBA’s newest identity took on the Philadelphia 76ers last night back in their old home state of New Jersey at Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall.
As it was a Sixers home game the Nets wore their black road jerseys eventually finishing as a 108-105 OT victory for Brooklyn.
I was a little disappointed how they looked in action – sure we knew what they looked like going into the game but it doesn’t really hit you until you see it. Black and white? It’s just too simple to be interesting. You can judge for yourself, I think it’s an interesting concept but just doesn’t quite hit the mark.

The eagle-eyed viewer may have also noticed the Sixers are wearing a patch, this is their 50th season patch celebrating their 50th season since moving from Syracuse to Philadelphia back in 1963/64. We have yet to get a good quality version of this patch but will add it as soon as we can.
Brooklyn will wear their home whites for the first time, presumably for their first home pre-season game (also the first basketball game at Barclays Center) which takes place tomorrow night against the Washington Wizards.
