Jay-Z to Help Design Brooklyn Nets Jersey

Hov will put his fresh touch on his team’s new uniforms.

First he helped remix his basketball team’s name, and now Jay-Z, part owner of the soon to be Brooklyn Nets, is working to create a new uniform for his team when it moves to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn next year.

The Jigga Man is working with the Nets and Adidas to create a new logo and team colors, officials told the New York Post. The team’s red, silver, white and navy blue colors will “likely be changed,” as will the current logo which features the word “Nets” hovering over a basketball.

Although the new graphic has yet to be determined, of course it’ll feature the rapper’s hometown in prominent display. “Brooklyn will be involved in whatever we do,” said Fred Mangione, chief marketing officer for the Nets and Barclays Center.

Jay-Z is also set to open the 18,000-seat arena in September 2012 with up to three concerts and surely he’ll be sporting his new creation. How would you redesign the new jersey? Any suggestions?
