Brooklyn Nets logo/jerseys in the works..

@SportsBata ..nuff said

The Brooklyn Nets have been officially named, and Jay-Z announced “maybe one, maybe two, maybe three” Sept 2012 grand opening concerts at the Barclays Center BK! So now Jay-Z, Adidas, and Nike are looking for a new look logo/jersey! They are deciding what colors to use for the jersey, and the print for the logo. Of course, “Brooklyn” will stand out on the logo!

“Brooklyn will be involved in whatever we do,” said Fred Mangione, chief  marketing officer for the Nets and Barclays Center.

The team’s colors — currently red, silver, white and navy blue — will likely  be changed, officials said.

“We will always tinker with things along the way,” Mangione said.

Team officials confided that they briefly considered renaming the team the “Brooklyn Dodgers” — in honor of the borough’s beloved baseball team that fled  to Los Angeles in 1957 — but eventually nixed the idea.

Borough President Marty Markowitz said he was pleased with the team’s  renaming, although he did not get his full wish — that the team be dubbed the “Brooklyn Bridges” or “Brooklyn Tudes” — as in “Attitudes.”

“My main issue was that the team had to have ‘Brooklyn’ in its name, so I’m  happy,” he said.

The Nets started off in 1967 as the New Jersey Americans in the former ABA  before moving to Long Island a year later and being renamed the New York  Nets.

The club entered the NBA in the 1976-77 season and a year later, moved to New  Jersey. ny post
