The Brooklyn Nets and adidas Originals have teamed up for a premium capsule collection in celebration of the Nets finding a new home and vision. Featured in the line up is a wool jacket, t-shirt, crewneck, a custom USB drive, as well as a limited edition Schott x Kith Brooklyn carryall duffel. The details are immense and the best part is that all proceeds from the limited edition sports bag will go directly to helping Hurricane Sandy victims.
There’s currently a lot of excitement around the Brooklyn Nets. They now call the Barclays Center home, a $1 Billion arena we got to experience this past weekend for the team’s season opener. Not only did the Nets win, but they did it less than a week after one of the most devastating storms hit the region. As we were exiting, everyone was handed a copy of BrooklynKnight #1, a 32-page comic book written by Jason Aaron and illustrated by Mike Deodato. Who is the BrooklynKnight, you ask? Well, according to both Marvel Entertainment and the Brooklyn Nets, the new mascot and NBA’s first super hero is the “protector of Brooklyn’s hometown team, defender of New York’s largest and most courageous borough, and ruler of Barclays Center.” Though we were lucky enough to get a copy of #1, fans at the November 11 home game against the Orlando Magic can expect a limited edition BrooklynKnight trading card courtesy of Marvel Custom Solutions and the Brooklyn Nets.
Seven years after first being proposed, the Brooklyn Nets are officially here and will call Barclays Center home in the heart of BK. The new logo of the team has been unveiled and seems the new team will opt for a black and white colorway rather than the gray, blue and red of the New Jersey Nets. Who came up with this, you ask? Minority owner Jay-Z had a hand in the new branding and design. The new ad campaign has launched as well to stir up ticket sales and raise awareness for the new look, with the tagline “Hello Brooklyn” being the central theme. Check out the 30-second spot below.
