Brooklyn Nets bring back red, white and blue banners at Barclays Center

NetsDaily/Furnace

Walking into Barclays Center for the Nets home opener on November 3, there was one disconcerting note amid the awe of a new arena, new team, etc. The Nets championship banners, commemorating the ABA championships in the mid-1970's and the Jason Kidd-era NBA division and conference titles, had been replaced with black-and-white replicas in keeping with the mono-chromatic theme of the arena and team.

Sunday, the red, white and blue banners were back up and the black-and-white were down. Whether it was planned or the result of some (needed) nostalgia remains a mystery, but for Sunday's game vs. the 76ers, fans saw a little color in the rafters and some tradition. The Nets have also quietly added a banner to commemorate Jay-Z's eight sold-out shows to open the arena.
