The NBA switched uniform providers from Adidas to Nike. As such, Nike has made several changes, ditching home and away gear. Instead teams, like the Brooklyn Nets, play in Statement and Association jerseys. Now they also have City editions.

The Brooklyn Nets have one of the most prestigious heritages in the NBA. The team plays in Brooklyn, a borough known for its grit. The new City edition uniforms, unveiled on Wednesday via a press release, celebrate just that.

Clad in black with whitish grey crisscrossing pinstripe, the fourth and final uniforms the Nets will play in are inspired by Brooklyn’s most famous landmark, the Brooklyn Bridge. But the grey stripes are not the only homage to the bridge.

While most teams opt to have either the city or the team name on the front of the jersey, the Nets went with both. Across the chest, the jersey features an arched “Brooklyn Nets.” It looks kind of like the cables on the bridge.

However the placement of the arc has “lyn” in the middle of the chest, with an awkward space on the right.

But for the first time in franchise history, the Brooklyn Nets have used their full name on the front of their jerseys.

There is also a subtle nod to the Atlantic Terminal-Baclays Center subway stop. There are small red, orange, green and yellow dots on the right leg on the shorts. These represent the subway lines that stop at the station.

The jock tag features the team’s motto, “Brooklyn Unite.”

Brooklyn will debut the new uniforms on Jan. 31 against Philadelphia. They will wear the uniforms 13 times this season. The team will wear the uniforms at home exclusively this season.
