Want All Access? No Problem.
Want An NBA Season? Now That's a Big Problem.
Billboard; Flatbush Avenue at 5th Avenue.
Want an "All Access" pass to all things Nets on and off the court? No Problem! Just call the number in front of the Barclays Center construction site. They'll set you up. I'm sure.
Front entrance; Flatbush Avenue at Atlantic Avenue.
Want an NBA season in 2011-2012? Now that's going to be a problem. And apparently it's becoming a bigger problem by the day. The two sides still can't decide how to divide billions of dollars. So much for playing nice and sharing. Boys will be boys I guess.
The NBA...., eh hem, ....Commissioner Stern.... has announced that regular season games are next in line for the guillotine. Training camps and the exhibition schedule have already been chopped. And if something isn't worked out by this coming Monday, games due to start November 1st and for the first two weeks of the 2011-2012 regular season will also get beheaded.. Let em eat cake!
One year! That's all I'm saying. Both parties have one year to figure out how to divide their pennies and resume playing. Because if something happens to the open of the designated start of Nets' Basketball in Brooklyn...., fugheddaboudit! You don't wanna know. When these doors are ready to open, so too should the NBA be ready to play as well. That should give them plenty of time. Right?
