Brooklyn Nets Remixed New Jerseys Take It Back To N.Y.

It’s the remix!

B.K. style.

The Brooklyn Nets could use a little reworking to keep them fresh. Even if ever since they departed from the Springsteen Meadowlands of New Jersey and headed for the city of New York’s coolest borough they’ve looked as much as every cent of the millions of bucks invested in their relocation to the bold and bravado Barclays Centre.

But what’s gone down on the woodgrain parquet has not looked so smoove. The Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, Boston Celtic superteam experiment didn’t exactly work out (The Truth between Washington and Clipper town has bounced from team to team, whilst Da Kid is back home with his Wolf Pack in Minnesota) and the Deron Williams and Joe Johnson eras are officially done and dusted.

Now a Brooklyn brass that is getting no sleep must rely on underrated big-man twin Brook Lopez and former New York 15 minutes of fame star Jeremy Lin to hit nets for the club.

Because this state of the art franchise may look good, but their bare bones team is a few hip replacements from feeling good right now.

At least their apparel is on point like D-Will used to be. You can’t go anywhere-especially in the Knicks city-without seeing that B.K. logo on black or white. Just like their classic home and away jersey signatures, Brooklyn knows how to go hard like S. Carter.

Even since Jay-Z’s ownership sale there is still a lot at stake when it comes to their stock. From Los to sleeves just look at some of their alternatives. From the powder blue on grey third string uni to the white stars and stripes classic homage.

Well now the Nets are throwing it back even more like Mitchell and Ness when it comes to uniforms in that same vein. They’re taking it back to the ABA when the good doctor Julius Erving was making above the rim calls. The ‘Brooklyn Remix’ jersey even takes it back before these Nets moved to New Jersey with Jason Kidd, Kenyon Martin and Richard Jefferson or Vince Carter and were actually as much a part of the Big Apple core of basketball as the Knickerbockers as they are now. The 80’s to 90’s golden era when the Nets were as Long Island as ice tea.

Paying homage to all the parts of greater New York that this franchise have put up nets in, these new jerseys that look as good as Jeremy Lin’s haircut and hot streak are the best yet. Especially in a summer that has seen some new hotness. From the Orlando Magic logo black alternates to the Wizards stars and stripes spell honouring soldiers. And who could forget Toronto’s sky blue signatures that pay tribute to hockeys Huskies? You’ll see owner Drake rocking them in the 6 one night soon.

Now these charcoal stars on stripes look from the Nets with the Brookyln trim will take to the court walk 12 times this season. Lets hope the Lopez and Lin lead B.K. bombers have 12 men that look just as good. So they can turn around last seasons low 21 win campaign.

Then that will be something they can really rock.

New Knick RJ Barrett Treated Las Vegas Summer League Like A New York Playground

New Knick RJ Barrett Treated Las Vegas Summer League Like A New York Playground
R.J. State Of Mind...

Magnitudes off the Richter. An earthquake hit Sin City like jackpot in the NBA’s Summer League in Las Vegas, Nevada out in the desert last week.

And as the Jumbo-tron still shook like the music it was pumping, many people in awe inspired attendance would have been forgiven for thinking it was Zion. As the Duke standout and the first pick in the 2019 NBA Draft Williamson made us feel more tremors than Kevin Bacon. As the new New Orleans Pelican burst out the hardwood and flew, man-handling a steal off an opponent who’s just a poster now’s inbounds pass and put back a viscous, signature slam that felt like they still tested atomic bombs out in the Nevada desert overlooking the electric, neon skyline. All whilst new and former teammates respectively, Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart and Anthony Davis looked on with “here comes the big airplane” mouths.

But after the road to Mount Zion’s knee injury lead to more Patrick Ewing ice than up there in Japan’s Mount Fuji, it was better the Blue Devil you know. As the Knicks third pick RJ Barrett ended up moving the needle more over this scorching, seasonal tourney of the youthful future of this association. Looking as good as those beautiful blue Knicks Summer League jerseys that are so clean we want to see them fresh off the press in the the NBA Store in NYC. So much so that even if RJ handed you one of his autographed signatures post game you’d still be like, “you got this in a medium?”

Sounding better than all those thirsty announcers singing “Summer Leeeeague” like The Isley Brothers this time of year classic, ‘Summer Breeze’. Making everything feel fine as he blew through defenders like the Jasmine in my mind. RJ initialed his dynamic debut and mainstream moment. Making Knicks’ fans almost forget that they just lost out on their number one goal, Zion Williamson. Or their free agent duo desire of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, who ended up on the other side of New York, across that bridge from Manhattan in Brooklyn with the Nets…almost. Following the sweated out, hard nosed 90’s were only Jordan and Starks shots got in the way of golden era glory, the Knicks’ now have their first real leader in the post Porzingis era since Syracuse star ‘Melo for the Orangemen.

And he’s not alone. Barrett who was choosing Knicks’ mannequin heads to bucket on New York’s Late Night show with Jimmy Fallon nights before the draft cap has plenty to pass to in a Pelican rivaling young core of young guns, Kevin Knox and Allonzo Trier, new free agent signing Julius Randle (this Pel is still a big ‘cat out of Kentucky like Anthony Davis or DeMarcus Cousins reunited on the Lake Show like purple and gold fans hoped he would be too), Elfrid Payton and of course the soaring Dennis Smith Jr. Not to mention a bolstered bench of Taj Gibson and Reggie Bullock from more than midtown. Call it Chelsea, the Tribeca or even Battery Park after the High-Line of the Meatpacking District. The future of this franchise to the naked eye of ignorance is about to look better than the view from that new Vessel structure in Hudson Yards.

Barrett began in Vegas with some early snake eyes trouble. But rolling the dice again he turned into a killer like Brandon Flowers. The man. Come round. Nothing can break. Nothing can break him down. First he scorched California’s new look King sized Lakers for 21 points, 10 rebounds and three assists. But it was his spell in his last Summer forecast against the Wizards were RJ showed Washington that just like NYC, DC may be America’s capital, but there’s nothing like New York, New York. He was so good you had to check the instant replay twice, with another 21 and 10, two perfect precision passes off cashing in a triple-double chip like he was a team that had both James Harden and Russell Westbrook on their roster roll call. Houston, do you read me?

Averages of 15.4 points, 8.6 rebounds and 4.2 assists in a televised tournament that is basically a glorified practice scrimmage (tell me, do you even know who won the thing?) show he will be above so. The Canadian Maple Mamba has that syrup for your bacon. Even without free agent big names like Kevin and Kyrie who are one more decision away from being journeymen, forget super-teams, the Knicks may have a lifer in RJ from Coach K’s Duke fraternity administration in the association now. Can you relate? Barrett could be brilliant and New York no longer a rotten apple. But a couple of big names away from having their title again in the Mecca of Madison Square Garden’s, World’s Most Famous Arena in bright Times Square lights.

It’s almost a New Year for New York, time for the ball to drop.
