What Do You Think of the Brooklyn Nets' New Logo? [POLL]

Created by co-owner Jay Z, designs for basketball team unveiled on Monday.

The borough's first professional ball club in more than 50 years is now officially a brand.

The Brooklyn Nets unveiled two new team logos at on Flatbush Avenue on Monday.

"The Brooklyn Nets logos are another step we’ve made to usher the organization into a new era," said hip-hop artist and team co-owner Jay Z, who created the designs. "Along with our move to Brooklyn and , the new colors and logos are examples of our commitment to update and refine all aspects of the team."

With the new logos, Jay-Z emerged as a triple-threat for the Brooklyn Nets organization—serving as co-owner, and now, it seems, lead designer.

According to the Nets, the new logos combine design aspects from the current New Jersey Nets brand with the iconic "B" for Brooklyn—with one version a shield including "Brooklyn" at the bottom, the other with the words, "Brooklyn, New York," surrounding a basketball.

What do you think? Do the new logos "symbolically identify the team with the strength and character of Brooklyn"?

Or do the new designs for the borough's basketball team fall flat?

Looks like an eight ball.

Thanks for the input, Regina! Do you think that will work for or against them?

I think it's cool. They should add a Navy blue to the mix

The Nets suck, no fancy eye catching design can remedy that... What a bad investment eh Bruce??

Great civic pride, eh J?

I like the the logo with round the round Brooklyn, New York. I don't like the shield because there is too much empty space. It doesn't fill the space like the former does.

Looks like a tax payer rip off....

The "B" in the basketball on both logos is very nice. It's actually a beautiful "B" embellished with nice swirling lines conjuring up that it is indeed a basketball and not an "8" ball.

It looks like someone changed the "Raiders" logo for the "Nets". With all the talent in Brooklyn, I know we can do better than this. The 'Nets" need a logo that inspires as well as celebrate "Brooklyn. "Hard"

The Nets are the worst team in the NBA and I am supposed to be excited about their arrival in Brooklyn? Call me when the Nets are in the NBA Playoffs.

Sara May 01, 2012 at 06:47 PM
Seriously...it's not all about winning! It's fun to have something to root for and be excited about. I'm looking forward to it

No way this emblem represent Brooklyn. The logo & colors are dull, boring and just plain ugly. Come on Brooklyn, with all the artistic talent we have here and we can't come up with a better logo and use livelier colors.

Well look at the designer.

It looks pretty bland with just the black and white...

Dumb that they think they have to add "New York." Maybe everyone would think it's the Brooklyn located in Iowa. (There is one.)

It sorta reminds me of a NYC subway token which I miss..Im a lousy swiper! I like it says BROOKLYN NY..............!
Dios Thunders July 05, 2012 at 11:02 PM
it is not artistic or exciting but it wont effect the out come.....JAY Z has alot of plans for this place besides sports it Will make a TON of $$$$$$$$$$$$$ eventaully if they get feed back thats not positive they will modify if but basically I think Brooklyn people kids families are excited and looking forward to concerts and games and JAY-Z is going to do it in a big way _People will respond They like the man he is from Brooklyn Brooklyn kids and familys whogrew up here will be extreamly supportive...as long as JAY Z keeps proces reasonable he is also bring JOBs ot the area and People very much support that so really the lable the REpresentive eblem of the place isnt all that important ...as whats going to be happening inside the stadium, though personally I find it dull.........
