This offseason hasn’t been easy for the Brooklyn Nets at all, as they seemed to be making headlines every day due to the drama that surrounded All-Stars Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. No one seemed happy with the direction this franchise was heading and when he asked for a trade in June, Durant and the Nets seemed to put things right and decided to move on.
Heading into the 2022-23 season, the Nets definitely look like a championship contender on paper and with Irving and Durant still leading this team, Brooklyn could end up finding quite a bit of success.
Not to mention, they could look really good with their new Statement Edition jerseys that the team released on Tuesday.
Each NBA team has their own Statement Edition jerseys, which are basically just alternate uniforms that the team will wear for nationally televised games throughout the season.
The Nets are a very historic NBA franchise and the “all black” nature of this uniform definitely represents their history in this league for a special reason.
“Ten years ago, the Brooklyn Nets made history as the first NBA team to wear black and white as their primary colors,” said Andrew Karson, senior vice president of marketing, strategy and brand solutions at BSE Global, parent company of the Brooklyn Nets. and Barclays Center, said. “For New Yorkers, black has been the uniform for decades – it’s chic, and for many represents boldness, sophistication and elegance. We are proud to continue this tradition as we enter the Nets’ second decade in Brooklyn with a new twist on the classic Icon uniform.
Brooklyn will debut their new Statement edition on October 21, the team’s second game of the season, against the Toronto Raptors and they will continue to wear these jerseys for every Friday night home game as part of the Friday Night Live events of this season.
This new Statement Edition uniform will be worn by the Nets a total of seven times during the regular season against the Toronto Raptors (twice), Atlanta Hawks (twice), Milwaukee Bucks, Indiana Pacers and Orlando Magic.
After a 44-38 season and a first-round loss in the 2022 playoffs, the Brooklyn Nets will be looking to prove they are one of the best teams in the NBA in the 2022-23 season and have that what it takes to win a title.
