From Larry Brown Sports:
A trip to the New Jersey Nets' website will have you greeted by a rather cryptic message. It's a shield outlined in white that sits in the center of a black background and is accompanied by the hashtag "#hellobrooklyn." Apparently this is a tease of the Nets' new logo and color scheme. We'll find out soon enough. The team's name change becomes official next week and the Nets are planning an official unveiling of their new look for Monday.
But on Wednesday a soon-to-be-fired (probably) IT technician at Barclays Center seems to have beaten the Nets to the punch, tweeting out the photo you see above (the employee's account has since been deleted). You're looking at plausibly the new logo of your Brooklyn Nets. It's in line with what the franchise has been teasing. Well, aside from the blue construction tape.
The Nets, of course, are still remaining mum. Here's CEO Brett Yormark:
The alleged new look adopts elements of Nets' current logo, such as featuring the word "Nets" atop a basketball, both enclosed by a shield. But the franchise is evidently departing from the red, white and blue color scheme it's had since its days as the Americans in the ABA.
Back in September it was reported that part-owner and rap superduperstar Jay-Z would have a hand in the redesign. And while I would have enjoyed a modern update of the New York Nets' jerseys from the time of Dr. J, I like the job Mr. Z has done. Simple yet stylish. Nothing cartoonish like the current look. Chris Christie probably hates it.

As we wrap up the 2011-2012 NBA campaign and the final season in New Jersey for the Nets, all eyes turn towards their move to Brooklyn. Led by majority owner Mikhail Prokhorov and 1% owner Jay-Z, the team is trying to usher in a new era, capture the feel of New York City, and forget about all the bad memories they have from New Jersey.

Last night was the final game in New Jersey for the New Jersey Nets (soon to be the Brooklyn Nets) and one person who didn't shed a team was governor Chris Christie.During a press conference, Christie let his feelings known that he wouldn't be attending the final game and told the team, "Good Bye...Good Riddance": (Courtesy of SB Nation)
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie spoke on the day of the last New Jersey Nets game in his state, and his feelings were not hidden. It seems the Governor has a slight case of sour grapes as he made it very clear that he didn’t wish the Nets too much success in Brooklyn. The 35-year run for the Nets in new Jersey is up, and it seems the Governor is ready to move on.
The Nets franchise unveiled a new campaign centered around their move to Brooklyn that also serves the purpose of providing a hint at the team's new logo.
