Jay-Z Had To Argue For Nets New Jersey’s
By: Jared Ramos
We know Jay-Z is heavily involved with the Brooklyn Nets. Despite only owning one percent of the team he stands to make a ton of cash off the Nets. As everyone knows, Jay-Z was behind the Nets new look, but that wasn’t without some feedback from the NBA.
He helped design the team logos and choose the team’s stark black-and-white color scheme, and personally appealed to National Basketball Association officials to drop their objections to it (the N.B.A., according to a person with knowledge of the discussion, thought that African-American athletes did not look good on TV in black, an assertion that a league spokesman adamantly denied).
The Spurs already wear black as their primary uniforms, so I don’t see why the league would have such a problem with the Nets wearing black. If they really want to bitch at the Nets then they should start with that $60 million max contract they gave to Brook Lopez.
