Jay-Z unveils new Nets road jersey
By Mike Mazzeo
They're finally here!
Brooklyn Nets minority owner Jay-Z opened his concert Friday night by wearing the team's new road jersey on stage at the Barclays Center.
The Nets will wear white (home) and black (road) jerseys that feature "Brooklyn" in the front and "herringbone tape running vertically along the sides, matching the team's court design," according to a team news release.
The Nets open their first season in Brooklyn at their brand-new $1 billion arena on Nov. 1 against the rival Knicks.
Friday night marked the first of eight sold-out concerts that Jay-Z will perform.
