The Brooklyn Nets’ potential new away uniforms were leaked in the media this week. The jerseys are said to be the inspired creation of rap mogul and part owner Jay-Z, according to sources.
The solid black jerseys appear simplistic and plain. They boast solid white lettering, white trim, and minor accents of white, but the remainder of the jersey is solid black. Needless to say, there is nothing fancy about this look at all, the jerseys are almost boring at best. However, many speculate that the classic look would heavily appeal to fans of urban fashion as well as other New York and Brooklyn folks.
The Nets also reveal their home court floor design at their newly design home arena, the Barclays Center. Unlike the uniforms, the floor appears to be quite distinctive and unique. The court boasts a herringbone style pattern that, in a way, emulates the fabled parquet look of the Boston Celtics’ TD Bank Garden. The floor was created at Connor Sports Flooring Manufacturing Mill in Amasa, Michigan and consists of 240 panels each measuring 7-feet long and 4-feet wide. The court will take four hours to assemble.
The Nets uniforms will be officially revealed by the organization next week. The floor will make its official debut on November 1st when the Nets open their season against their now crosstown rival, the New York Knicks.
