This is apparently Brooklyn Nets new logo

The fine folks at Deadspin found this (in the twitter account of an IT guy who works at the under-construction Barclay Center, which will be home to the Nets next year). It is apparently the new logo for your Brooklyn Nets. This image is up on the walls at the Barclay Center. Obviously, the blue tape is not part of it.

I’d say this is the logo that Deron Williams will be wearing next year, but I think that will look a lot more like this.

I kind of like it. Simple, clean, keeping the shield and paying homage to the old look while getting away from the red, white and blue color scheme to something a little more New York in tone. I hear black is the new black this year.

The official unveiling of the logo is expected to come in the days after the season ends.

    Great idea from from writer Jason Gay, no nickname, just “BROOKLYN”. Knicks vs BROOKLYN or Lakers vs BROOKLYN. New way to go!

    They should have went the ol’ school route with the ABA logos from back in the day. Those were hot!

    I like the idea of NYETS, to pay homage to the Russian owner. Brooklyn Nyets slides off the tongue.

    It should be the “New York Nets”!!!!!

    It doesn’t have the same feel like how the “Brooklyn Dodgers” did!!!!!

    Bring back the ABA tradition that can’t be seen in ugly retro jerseys!!!!!!!!!

      For someone who is always saying the Nets are irrelevant you sure do spend a lot of time commenting about them.

      Also what the hell is wrong with you ! key?

        I don’t say that the Nets are irrelevant!!!

        I just am trying to say that the positive tone or excitement of the Nets isn’t necessary or warranted!!!! I’m also trying to point out that there needs to be more concern about this team!!!!! There isn’t as much and that’s wrong!!!

        Get your friggin’ words right!!!!

    is that logo being held together by blue tape?

    Here’s a logo someone designed a while ago that looks much better.

      Dude that thing is hideous. This dude Michael Weinstein is redesigning all the NBA logos and his Nets one is a killer. Scroll down to number 4.
