The season may be over for the New Jersey Nets on the court, but their fans still have a lot to look forward to in the upcoming weeks.
After 35 years in the Garden State, the New Jersey Nets are set to move to Brooklyn next season. The Nets will become the first team to represent Brooklyn since the Dodgers left the borough in 1957.
The franchise will call the brand new Barclays Center its home. Along with the move to the $1 billion arena in Brooklyn, the Nets will embrace a fresh look. On Monday April 30, the franchise is set to unveil their new logo and color scheme for the 2012-2013 season.
However, with the power of Twitter, the logo, or what seems to be the Nets’ new emblem, has already been revealed. The logo is rather bland. Its colors are black and white, with the team’s nickname situated on top of a white basketball covered with the letter “B.”
Nets officials have not acknowledged the validity of the logo, and at this point it seems that nobody really knows if the emblem is the real deal.
If this logo is in fact the one that the Brooklyn is going to unveil on Monday, the Nets will be taking the same “old school” path that so many other teams have used in recent years. The black and white color scheme may be the best thing about the logo, and could mean that the Nets are in store for some nice new uniforms, which minority owner Jay-Z helped design.
