Brooklyn Nets

There's a new black-and-white themed basketball court in Beijing.  The Nets, adidas, and NBA Cares teamed up  to unveil a refurbished Nets-themed court at Ditan Sports Center in Beijing on Tuesday. The court is mostly a replica of the Barclays Center floor (minus the herringbone floor pattern.)

The dedication ceremony was attended by Brook Lopez, CEO Brett Yormark, and officials from adidas, the local school authority and NBA Cares as well as 50 children from Hepingli No.1 Primary School and of course, the Brooklynettes dance team who are traveling with the team.

"We’re proud to give back to the Beijing community by refurbishing the court at Ditan Sports Center," said Yormark. "We hope this Nets-themed court serves as an inspiration for young people to play hard and be a great teammate. Thank you to adidas and NBA Cares for helping us leave our black and white mark in China as we continue to expand our fan base worldwide."

The black and white adorned indoor court features Nets, adidas, and NBA Cares logos on the court and wall padding. Ditan Sports Center basketball courts serve more than 100,000 children annually. Every child in attendance at the dedication ceremony received a Nets shirt.

The Nets will play the Kings Wednesday at MasterCard Center in Beijing.
