The Nets are embracing their Brooklyn identity.

The latest step: These graffiti-style jerseys.


If you can’t place why these look so familiar, Chris Herring of 538 has you covered:

I love when teams incorporate local themes into their uniforms, and these Nets jerseys definitely do that. If they resemble anything else, it’s probably at least in part because street art – including from Brooklyn – has influenced other designs. The Nets shouldn’t get dinged for that reverberating back.

These are a little too hokey to be great jerseys. But they’re simple and authentic enough to be solid.
