In other Nets news…..
The Nets have announced that construction on the Barclays Center in Brooklyn is on schedule and will be set to open on September 28th, 2012.
However, the Brooklyn Nets won’t christen the new arena. That honor will go to minority owner and rap superstar Jay-Z. Who will perform two shows at the Barclays Center giving his official “Brooklyn” stamp on the building that rests on the corners of Flatbush and Atlantic avenues.
The Nets will have their opportunity to put their “stamp” on their new home starting next season.
