The Brooklyn Nets drew inspiration from Biggie for their new City Edition uniform. The Nets pay homage to the hip-hop legend with design inspiration coming from his famous Coogi sweaters. The multi-color pattern inspired by Biggie, runs down the sides of the jersey and shorts and along the sleeve and neckline. A customized *BED-STUY* mark for each player has been designed by renowned graffiti artist Eric Haze and been placed above the jersey's jock tag.
"Nice mixture," said DeMarre Carroll. "It's not too much. I think that's the goal. The designer who did it was awesome, because they got the right amount of flashy, but not too flashy. It's great. I think it's great not only for the organization but it's great for the city of Brooklyn. To pay homage to somebody who means so much to Brooklyn and put Brooklyn on the map. When you say Brooklyn, you think of Biggie. Hopefully these jerseys can bring a rich diversity and unity to the fans and the organization."
