Hov kept it plain and simple—but sharp with the Brooklyn Nets logo. During his chat with MTV, the franchise’s co-owner said vintage NY subway signs were his muse.
“I wanted to make it really classic and strong; a throwback to Brooklyn and what we’re about. It’s real gritty and we’re not about flash — well, sometimes. Just the roots of Brooklyn as this very bold, strong, simple logo.
It was really a take off the old subway signs, if you look at the old subway signs they were in black and white. It was that strong, beautiful, iconic black and white. I wanted to pick something that would stand the test of time and be here forever.”

Can’t afford the expensive bubbly? Well Jigga may have the drink for you cognac sippers. Last night, he helped Barcadi introduce their new drink D’usse (“dew-say”) at a private event in New York City. Pricewise, a 750 ml bottle will cost you a reasonable $44.99. Not bad at all. Cheers!
