The Brooklyn Nets will co-host the NBA All-Star Game with the New York Knicks this upcoming season, and the Nets announced a few initiatives in conjunction with the All-Star game, including a new uniform patch worn in the games leading up to All-Star Weekend and a logo at the baselines of the court at Barclays Center. The uniform patch will go on the right side of the chest.

Per their deal with the Knicks, Barclays Center hosts the “pre-game” events, like the Rising Stars Challenge, Slam Dunk Contest, and the Three-Point Shootout, while Madison Square Garden hosts the actual All-Star Game on Sunday night.

Along with the aesthetic designs, the Nets will also host specialized events leading up to All-Star Weekend, including an indoor cycling class by “SoulCycle.”
