If you know your celebrity history, you know that Kris Humphries and Lamar Odom were once brother-in-laws. So when they ended up together for a jump ball last night, the crowd also recognized the momentousness occasion.
Thanks to the Kardashian family, these two will forever be linked in some odd way. And this jump ball was just something amazing. (Plus now there are rumors that Khloe is hooking up with The Game?)
There hasn’t been this much love for a jump ball since Jeremy Lin’s NBA debut.
Sean Carter shows off his new jersey with some chains.
Screw the official unveiling. Sean Carter doesn’t roll like that. Hova decided to sport the new Brooklyn Nets jersey at the Barclays Center’s grand opening on Friday night.
The jersey is exactly as we expected to be.
It’s a simple black jersey with Brooklyn written across the front. No complicated patterns or anything. The white jersey is expected to be an exact mirror of this set. This is what the shorts look like.
New Nets look?
Jay-Z wanted a very simple black and white look for the Brooklyn Nets and according to this screen shot from an NBA 2K13 demo, the uniforms are exactly that.
If you squint your eyes, you’d think you’re looking at the San Antonio Spurs.
If these are the new Nets uniforms, their new set looks like something you could order off East Bay for your local sports team. No piping down either the the jersey or shorts. It doesn’t appear to be any logo on the shorts either. It’s just a simple white text on the jersey and I would assume the home whites will be the exact mirror reflection.
What do you think of this Nets design?
Maybe I am a little too critical sometimes, but my perception of athletes are usually predicated on their actions away from the game, then their game itself. So with all the whining and complaining Dwight Howard has made about being unhappy about being with Orlando over the past couple years, I really feel like he’s just a big baby.
First of all, I never even was a fan of his game. He’s terrible at free throws and his offensive game is not that good. He has great ability to block shots and dunk because of his size, but I would never build my team around him. He’s so bulky up top and doesn’t really impress me on the floor.
So it doesn’t help that I am not impressed by his game and then this whole saga about being traded continues to hover over his image. I know sports is a business and players have the right to look for new opportunities. But there’s a way to do it and Howard has done it all wrong.
Just sign him because of his hair.
A couple days ago the Nets held a tryout and Adam Morrison was part of the crew of players there. After some time away from the NBA playing overseas, the former third overall pick showed up hoping to get one more chance at the NBA.
Some team has to sign him. The benches haven’t been the same without him. And most importantly, his new hair, goatee or whatever he’s trying to look like is a much needed facelift the NBA needs.
We need Adam Morrison back in our NBA lives.
The new Brooklyn Nets logo?
According to Deadspin, we might have our first look at the new Brooklyn Nets logo. As you can see by the photo, it has the same shield design that was teased by the team.
In fact, it looks to be a very simplified version of their current logo. It’s not overly complicated as the font and the simple basketball gives a lot of homage to their New Jersey days but gives itself a new identity in itself.
The New Jersey Nets have this new video up on their site celebrating all the different logs that franchise has used. It’s a real cool video celebrating the team’s history.
You can watch the video right here.
But at the very end, they did a silhouette of what appears to be their new logo. As you can see by the screenshot, it’s a shield-type logo. This apparently could be a sneak peek at what the new Brooklyn Nets will look like.
