Contest: Brooklyn Nets Apparel


For the past couple of months, there’s been a proliferating buzz in anticipation of the Nets’ move from New Jersey to Brooklyn. With the team’s 2012 campaign finished, the organization is already focused on its next chapter. Today, you could say the prologue was written, as the Brooklyn Nets opened for business. The team introduced its brand-new logos, color-scheme (black and white) and a plethora of apparel available for purchase.

Fortunately, our good friends at adidas hooked us up with plenty of Nets gear, and, with a display of some basketball acumen and creativity, you can have some gear too, free of charge. We’ve got an excess of stuff (some of which is in the gallery above), and are ready to give away 10 fresh t-shirts, from casual vintage tees to adidas CLIMALITE short-sleeve practice tops, in both black and white.

Now, your part: To win, tell us your favorite basketball player from Brooklyn, and why, in the comment section.

It can be a player born-and-bred in the borough, like Bernard King, Chris Mullin, Stephon Marbury or Lance Stephenson, for example, or someone who was born in BK but holds only a marginal affiliation, like Michael Jordan or Carmelo Anthony. Drop a compelling, genuine reason or anecdote in the comment section, and you’ll be getting some fresh gear. Ten winners will be picked on Friday and contacted early next week. In the meantime, be sure to follow adidas Basketball and SLAMonline on Twitter. Hello, Brooklyn!
