In what is perhaps the most Brooklyn cross-over we've ever seen: the Brooklyn Nets will adopt Jerseys inspired by Jean-Michel Basquiat for its upcoming season.

According to what looks like authentic images, which leaked earlier this week, the Nets plan to honor Basquiat with a City Edition uniform inspired by his work. It was later confirmed that the jerseys will debut next season.

The jersey is black with “BKLYN NETS” in a scrawl reminiscent of Basquiat’s handwriting. Rainbow trim outlines the jersey, which also includes the artist’s signature, as well as his well-known crown motif, placed just above the NBA logo. The Nike swoosh is also designed to fit the style presented in two-tone blue and gold.

This new design is part of the NBA’s line of “City Editions” jerseys, which are redesigned each year for teams around the league. In 2019, the Nets honored another Brooklynite, Notorious BIG, with a special jersey calling out his Bed-Stuy neighborhood.
