Brooklyn Nets logo

What's black and white and scrubbed of all things Jersey?? The NEW LOGO for the Brooklyn Nets ... designed by part owner of the team Jay-Z. Jigga what?

The team -- which will be relocated from NJ to Brooklyn next season -- just released the new colorless logo ... which is already being hailed as "the new badge for Brooklyn."

Jay-Z, who is being credited with playing an "instrumental" role in the creation of the new logo, said in a statement, "The boldness of the designs demonstrate the confidence we have in our new direction ...  The new colors and logos are examples of our commitment to update and refine all aspects of the team."

So, we gotta ask ...

DId he really stick a basketball on it? Now the uneducated twits are infiltrating marketing and design. It's all over. That's a terrible, not cool, logo.

This is ridiculog for a design company this is so dumb and he did nothing more than take the current 3D logo make 2D and slap a B in the Basketball. My 2 yr old son could have done this. This is what he is being hailed for creating. Rubbish!

That's the kind of logo you make with some free graphics program when you are bored, sitting drunk in front of your computer on a Monday night. Jigga, go get some real talent to do the graphics !

Brooklyn is all about the hip hop scene. Who thought a completely black logo that could have been designed by a first year student was a good idea.The logo needs to make a statement, reminding the world how powerful Brooklyn really is!

to not have a professional do it is beyond arrogant, as usual from people like Jay Z and Kanye West to make attempts at raising their low self esteem as evident in their weak skills

We get it. It's a black owned team with a black logo with a "B" for black in the logo.
