From a team press release:
Brooklynettes has been introduced as the name for the dance team of the Brooklyn Nets. To accompany the name, the Brooklynettes revealed their new logo and off-season uniforms after the final roster was selected Wednesday night at Brooklyn Bowl in Williamsburg.
The Brooklynettes identity is inspired by Brooklyn and its new home team. The logo, designed by the Brooklyn Nets creative department, features a bold shield shape to symbolically identify the team with the strength and character of Brooklyn. The script is choreographic to signify the movement of a dancer. The graffiti-style logotype captures the urban landscape of Brooklyn.
“Brooklynettes exemplifies a strong feminine name with a creative connection to the borough,” said Petra Pope, Senior Vice President of Event Marketing and Community Relations for the Brooklyn Nets

It’s New York City, and it’s Brooklyn. It’s a different sensibility. We go hard,” the designer said, echoing a line from you-know-who.

Photos: 300 Dancers Try Out To Be Brooklynettes

More than 300 women traveled to Long Island University’s Fort Greene campus yesterday for a chance to join the Brooklyn Nets’ dance team next season. Unlike the basketball team, which just brought in former player Jason Kidd as head coach, the Brooklynettes stuck with coach Adar Wellington, who had the difficult task yesterday of winnowing down the group of 300 to just 40 dancers.

Cheers times two! Our reporter parties, then tries out for the Brooklynettes
By Jaime Lutz
Most journalists want to someday write the great American novel, but few have the ambition to dance in front of a roaring crowd at the Barclays Center.
Well, one does.
So when I learned that the Brooklyn Nets holding open auditions for the “Brooklynettes,” the team’s cleverly named intermissional troupe, I made a b-line for the Barclays Center with my tutu in tow.
