The Brooklyn Nets will honor Jean-Michel Basquiat, another Brooklynite, for its 2020 City Edition jersey.
The new jersey is part of the NBA’s “City Editions” collection, which are redesigned each year for teams around the league. In 2019, the team honored Notorious BIG with a special jersey calling out his Bed-Stuy neighborhood.
Jean-Michel Basquiat was an American artist, born in Brooklyn, primarily known for his enigmatic epigrams and neo-expressionist paintings.
According to UK Nets Fans, the Nets will honor Basquiat with a new 2020 City Edition jersey inspired by his art. The jersey is black with “BKLYN NETS” in a scrawl reminiscent of Basquiat’s handwriting. It also boasts rainbow trims and the artist signature as well as his well-known crown motif, placed just above the NBA logo. Even the Nike swoosh was designed to fit the style presented in two-tone blue and gold.
Word on the street is the Brooklyn Nets will wear a Jean-Michel Basquiat inspired jersey next season.
The artist was born in Brooklyn in 1960.
