The soon to be Brooklyn Nets need to make sure the rest of the changes involved with their move go better than the reported new logo. 

Images began circulating on the Internet of this new logo, and while the team has not confirmed it, Gothamist.com is reporting that their sources have confirmed that the image to the side will be the new logo.

Hopefully, this will allow the Nets time to change their minds before they make it official. 

The logo is stale and boring. It's like they ran out of color ink for their printer, so they printed it out in black and white and then just decided to keep it that way. 

Come on, Nets! A little color is always a good thing. Ideally, you'd think a team would want their logo to pop. They want it to jump off of the page, wall, hat, or whatever else it is on.

This logo is not going to cut it. It will blend into the background of wherever it is displayed. 

It is way to plain. And the worst crime of all is that the new city is barely represented. The "B" reps Brooklyn, but what's wrong with just putting the whole name of the city on there, or putting a little of the city in the design?

Take a look at the two faux logos to the side. These are just some random logos people threw out onto the Internet, and they both are way better than what the reported new logo is. 

Who knows? Maybe the Nets are on the verge of setting a new trend here. After all, the shape, lack of color and simplicity of the new logo would make a nice belt buckle. This could be the latest fad: Belt buckle logos.
