New Jersey aka Brooklyn Nets Unveil Temporary Logo (Photo)
Here is my thing, Jersey already has two New York teams that play in their city (Jets and Giants), so I don’t think losing the Nets will hurt that much.
I refuse though to call them the Brooklyn Nets.
They will be called the Brooklyn Brawlers by me until the end of time.
The Nets will unveil a special logo as early as Wednesday to coincide with the announcement of the 2011-2012 season schedule. The logo is actually pretty snappy. In the center is a tri-color basketball with the Nets name written in 1970’s era script, an homage to the team’s A.B.A. past. The number 35 in the middle. Below are the years 1977 and 2012, bookends to the team’s often-withered years in the Garden State. A tiny outline of the state is at the bottom in white.
