The Brooklyn Nets have changed a few things during their migration from New Jersey. They’ve gotten some better players, a new place to play and a new look. The new look reportedly comes courtesy of some help from rapper Jay-Z.
But it wasn’t as simple as coming up with a new design, according to the New York Times, Jay-Z had to do a little lobbying as well.
“[Jay-Z] helped design the team logos and choose the team’s stark black-and-white color scheme, and personally appealed to National Basketball Association officials to drop their objections to it (the N.B.A., according to a person with knowledge of the discussion, thought that African-American athletes did not look good on TV in black, an assertion that a league spokesman adamantly denied).”
Well that’s interesting. Of course the NBA is going to deny being that superficial, but that doesn’t mean it’s not true.
