Thank you for a great first season in Brooklyn, Nets Nation! We’ll be back better than ever next season.
“With Thursday’s hard-fought 95-92 victory over the Chicago Bulls, the Nets have forced a seventh meeting in their first-round playoff series. The final skirmish will take place on Saturday at the Barclays Center — the first time a Game 7 has taken place in Brooklyn since 1956’s Subway Series between the Yankees and the Dodgers.”
Believe in Brooklyn. 3-1 down, but definitely not out. Your Nets are looking to become the 9th team in NBA history to come back from such a deficit. We’ll need your support at Barclays Center tonight for the Blackout in Brooklyn!
We celebrated the 100th Anniversary of the first ever game played at Ebbets Field last night with a presentation of the World Championship pennant won by the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1955.
Jay-Z took to twitter to remind everyone that the Nets beat the Knicks in Overtime.
This is good: Knicks vs. Nets becomes a *real* rivalry, in one night.

“42” Official Trailer
Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures are teaming up with director Brian Helgeland for “42,” the powerful story of Jackie Robinson, the legendary baseball player who broke Major League Baseball’s color barrier when he joined the roster of the Brooklyn Dodgers. “42” will star Academy Award(R) nominee Harrison Ford (“Witness”) as the innovative Dodger’s general manager Branch Rickey, the MLB executive who first signed Robinson to the minors and then helped to bring him up to the show, and Chadwick Boseman (“The Express”) as Robinson, the heroic African American who was the first man to break the color line in the big leagues.
