The New Jersey Nets are no longer. The Brooklyn Nets are the future.
The newly-relocated NBA franchise even has a black-and-white logo, unveiled Monday at a sporting goods store on Flatbush Avenue, right across the street from its soon-to-be-completed home arena, the $1 billion Barclays Center.
Check out the Brooklyn Nets logo below:
Star center Brook Lopez was joined by coach Avery Johnson, General Manager Billy King, Bruce Ratner, the real estate developer, minority owner and catalyst behind the team’s relocation, and Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz.
“Hello Brooklyn,'” Lopez said. “I’ve been waiting a long time to say that. It’s exciting.”
No word if co-owner Jay-Z or soon-to-be free agent Kris Humphries were there.
