I hate every individual design element here. Hate the graffiti wordmark, hate the gray, hate the asterisk looking stars. Yet for some reason I love this uniform. Somehow it all works together. spacer.png

 

I really like everything they did here except for the wordmark. Obviously the graffiti-inspired art direction is a great idea but the execution makes it feel too corny to me. It reminds me of something that AND1 would have made in the 2000's.

same. outlining the numbers and matching them to the wordmark (and a better graf style) would've sealed this for me. crazy thing is, i wrote graffiti before anything else and i so badly want this to work but the style is superrrrrrr generic. i get that it's easier to template / read for people unfamiliar with the form but it's so blah to me.

 

i like what Flatbush&Atlantic (dude who designs bootleg Nets fan merch) did in making the wordmark more intricate (not dissimilar theoretically to say, the dodgers script) and matching the numbers:

EF-2FjsXkAIVPD5?format=jpg&name=mediumEF-2FjqWkAoLe4Q?format=jpg&name=medium

 

overall, the original is still a nice uni. the handstyle stars and the herringbone layered underneath on the side panels is pretty damn beautiful. but there was more to be done there. the more i see it the more i thin this uni will look the best on the grey court. i could see this becoming their playoff uniform the way the grey alts did that first jason kidd year.

Yea man I was gonna say I'd love to see some full graffiti concepts for this.  That BKLYN text is a bit messy for me but something close to that.

 

I also discovered the Nets subway uniform concept someone did, I love that look too.  I'd like some Nets gear in the subway font.

The problem is with everyone making changes yearly or almost yearly, it won't take long for good ideas to run out, and all you will see is crap.

That's probably why there are no earned editions this season.

I really like the graffiti stars, great spin on the ABA Nets look. I do wish the grey was darker, closer to the previous Statement, and that number sorely needs an outline

Anybody else feeling the mandela effect here? could’ve sworn these had stars before and after the B and N

I actually like the darker grey too.  Now that I see them together, the silver kinda drifts into Spurs territory.

Now I realized why I got such a big 90s vibe from seeing these new team shirts.

So going through the Bucks jersey schedule, we wear our city jersey against blue, red, black, & purple uniforms so it can't be any of those colors and needs to clash so something like cream or yellow again? Maybe white, lime green, orange, grey? 

 

Also is it confirmed the NBA scrapped the earned jerseys this year?

The more you look at the Brooklyn jersey, the more it grows on you.  Too bad the number font doesn't really match.

The graffiti-stylised script is different, but I like it. Nice job.

Not a Nets Fan, but the Jersey is great except for two things.

1. The numbers should fit the font used. That's a minor gripe since it's a one year uni but I'm glad that they went to a local artist to do their uniform that also fits the current nets brand.

2. The bigger issue should be the "infor" ad patch. That ad patch in my opinion has always kept the Nets uniform sets from being great. I wish the Nets told infor to change their logo for their jerseys so that its less intrusive but will still pop out. At least its not as bad as the Love's patch for Oklahoma City...

Statement jerseys are on 2 year rotations not 1 like city jerseys

Less than a month until these get worn on a BLACK AND GREY STREET COURT DESIGN!!!  I can't wait. 

 

I'm a little worried the grey jerseys might get a little lost on that court, though the white and black jerseys should look great.

 

I don't mind the number font thing; in fact I prefer it this way. I think in this current era of a million different ideas being thrown against the wall, keeping a consistent number font across jerseys that otherwise don't look like a set is one way to make a team continue looking like themselves.

But everything we've heard suggests that many teams are keeping their Statement jerseys for at least a 3rd year this coming season, so that much is still TBD.
