The Brooklyn Nets unveiled their new Nike uniforms via Twitter this morning. This season, the NBA will change its uniform providers from Adidas to Nike.

The Brooklyn Nets are the latest team to reveal their new Nike jerseys. The NBA switched its official outfitter from Adidas this season after rocking the Three Stripes for ten seasons. Adidas outfitted the Nets during the New Jersey days and the team’s transition to Brooklyn.

So far, Nike has not made a ton of radical changes with the jerseys, like adding sleeves, but has gotten rid of home and away jerseys. Now teams will wear “Association” and “Icon” uniforms. While they look like look like traditional home and away gear, teams will be free to wear them whenever, as long as their opponent wears a contrasting uniform.

Nike did not make any radical changes to the Nets’ uniforms. They opted to keep the same basic design as the old Adidas jerseys. Just take a look at the video:

One of the biggest differences is the Infor patch on the right side of the jersey. This season, the Nets joined eleven other teams to include sponsor patches on their jerseys. Originally, the Infor patches were red but they look much better in the team’s black and white.

Also, there are some minor tweaks. The neckline on the jersey looks to be wider than the Adidas uniforms. The piping on the shorts is new. When Adidas was making the shorts, the side-piping ran straight down. But as we can see in the video, now the piping splits in two.

It is all for the better that the Nets’ uniforms remain relatively the same. After all, the team has not been in Brooklyn for too long and maintaining a consistent image is important.
