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?

1st off Jay Z doesn't have a big enough say in that team. 2nd. Most folk don't to much care for him because of his hook up with K. West.

Fool. I live in NY and that thing clearly looks like it's saying this is the B team of the Nets.

The black and white is fine, but the B (for Brooklyn) is dumb.

It looks like a 3rd grader made that logo. That's a shame.

"The new colors and logos are examples of our commitment to update and refine all aspects of the team." Black and White is an update? OK everyone, lets all update our color TV's to black and white!
