The Nets have confirmed an internet rumor that that the Nets will don a so-called “graffiti” style uniform this season. The uniforms will make their court debut at Barclays Center on Friday November 1 when the Nets take on the Rockets. They will wear them for a total of 22 games this season. Fans on hand for Saturday’s Practice in the Park will get a sneak peak at the unis.
The “graffiti” uniform will now become one of four the team will wear this season. The others are the white and black traditional jerseys and the so-called Coogie style, this year in white.
The team, in its release unveiling the jersey, does not refer to it as “graffiti,” but that’s what it’s being called on the Internet. Instead the team refers to it simply as the “2019-20 Statement Edition Uniform by Nike.”
Here’s a gallery of the uniform, elements and the designer. Eric Haze. The Nets describe the design this way...
The concrete gray jersey features HAZE’s hand-drawn “BKLYN” letters across the chest. His signature stars run down the jersey’s left side as a contemporary twist on one of the team’s most iconic throwback looks. The side piping is an updated take on the herringbone pattern that has been a fixture on the team’s primary home and away jerseys since play began in Brooklyn, and also appears on the Nets home court.
“NETS” is spelled out down the left side of the shorts, and the team’s secondary logo sits on the right thigh. As with all Nets uniforms, the jersey will feature the Infor patch on the top left chest.
The uniforms will be available for purchase at NetsStore.com on Sunday, Oct. 20 at midnight, and at the Swag Shop at Barclays Center at noon.
