Your correspondent met Core77 founders Stu and Eric while all of us were attending Pratt and living in Brooklyn. While Core77 doesn't have any official link with Brooklyn, many of us staffers live or haved lived there for many years. That being the case, we're excited that the borough will soon be getting their own basketball team in the New Jersey, soon to be Brooklyn, Nets.
We had to give a shout-out to Coroflotter Brian Begley, whose well-designed (if unofficial) logo design for the team, shown up top, blends Brooklyn's iconic bridge with the graphic lines of a regulation basketball.
Begley, as we're sure you've noticed, the Nets' website does not yet have any Brooklyn-centric logo on it. Time to get Jay-Z on the phone.
