There is something about Brooklyn that I can't put into words. Even if you only spend a little time there you call it your home, and no matter where you go you want the world to know it's where you are from.
Brooklyn, New York (PRWEB) August 06, 2012
As a resident of Brooklyn himself, Ron Lewis, the Owner and Creative Director of http://www.TheRonlewisLabel.com, can't help but feel the excitement leading up to the grand opening of the Barclays Center, the new home of the Brooklyn Nets.
"People are talking about it, traffic patterns are being changed, billboards are going up and oh yeah…there is a stadium being built. It is hard not to get inspired by the energy and excitement of the whole thing. That is what motivated me to create the Brooklyn Basketball design. Residents of Brooklyn are die-hard supporters of their borough even without a team, so just imagine what is to come," stated Ron.
The Ronlewis Label added the Brooklyn Basketball design to their offering to give fans a way of showing their support for the borough and for the sport itself. The design boasts a bold print with some gritty printing effects, symbolic of the borough itself. The concept is comprised of an aerial view of a shaded basketball and hoop replacing the two "O"s in Brooklyn to signify that the sport will become a core part of the borough. The ball entering the hoop captures the hopeful success of the team in it's new home – a hope that is carried by many a fan.
Not everyone in the borough, especially those living close to the new stadium, are thrilled with the new arrangement. The traffic around the stadium, both pedestrian and vehicular, is sure to increase and make some folks very miserable. Ron, who lives in walking distance from the stadium has another perspective.
"Of course everyone is not going to be happy and I fully understand why, but I see something bigger that could potentially happen here for the borough. There are people who live in Manhattan and New Jersey that have never been to Brooklyn. So they have never experienced the borough I have come to love. This new stadium may be a great excuse from them to come over the bridge. Once they do, they too might get on the Brooklyn bandwagon. Brooklyn has historically had a strong sense of identity and Brooklyn Basketball will have it's own now as well. I am not just speaking professionally but I think it will inspire all types of basketball players and fans in and around the borough," said Ron.
