As we wrap up the 2011-2012 NBA campaign and the final season in New Jersey for the Nets, all eyes turn towards their move to Brooklyn. Led by majority owner Mikhail Prokhorov and 1% owner Jay-Z, the team is trying to usher in a new era, capture the feel of New York City, and forget about all the bad memories they have from New Jersey.
From Gothamist comes the image to the right which was tweeted by a worker from inside the new Barclays Center.
If it is indeed the new Nets logo, I like it. There have been rumors for a while that the team was going to switch to a black and white color scheme and this logo is simple yet impactful. In an era of myriad alternate uniforms and color combinations, this would be a nice change of pace.
The Nets are expected to officially reveal their new logo sometime this coming week.
