Where to buy the Brooklyn Nets’ new gray “BKLYN” jerseys

In October 2019, the Brooklyn Nets released their new Statement Edition jerseys from Nike for the 2019-20 season. The team will wear these new gray BKLYN jerseys 22 times this season.

The new concrete gray alternate uniforms emphasizes HAZE’s hand-drawn “BKLYN” letters across the jersey’s front chest. The unofficial name these are being referred to is appropriately the “graffiti jersey.”

You can find HAZE’s signature stars down the uniform’s side taking on a modern remix to one of the Nets’ most recognizable images. The stars recall the throwback jerseys worn by the likes of Julius Erving back in the ABA days. The team’s moniker “NETS” is found on the left side of the shorts while the team’s secondary logo is balanced onto the right thigh.

“These are awesome,” said Nets guard Joe Harris about the new jerseys. “These are some of the coolest jerseys I’ve seen… The graffiti type print is symbolic of the borough itself. It has a good vibe, good feel to it and it definitely kind of echoes the city and the team.”

“I’m loving (the new uniforms). When I saw them in the locker room this morning, I was like ‘Oh yeah! That’s dope.’” said new Brooklyn Net (and BK resident) Garrett Temple. “I love grays, black and white, so I’m really feeling the new jerseys, I’m really feeling the new court. It’s a great vibe.”

Temple’s and Harris’ replies echo the consensus on these Brooklyn Nets ‘graffiti’ jerseys as they seem to be universally loved by players and fans. Gray tends to be associated with boring and plain, but the Nets’ new Statement Edition uniforms really show how gray colorway can pop. Check out the jerseys at the Brooklyn Nets’ official NBA Store.

  • Whee can I buy a BKLTN graffiti jersey for myself. I’d like one with just number of my choice but no name is needed for the back. I wrote to someone earlier who said it could be done but never heard from that person again. Help please or let me know what the story is with the jerseys. Thanks, Marc
