If you haven’t been out of your cave for a while there is a battle to relocate the NJ Nets from their current home at the Izod Center in the Meadowlands to a doomed arena project in downtown Brooklyn or if the chips fall just right to the beautiful, modern Prudential Center in the Heart of Downtown Newark.
Now, although there has been no resolution and the powers that be at the Nets still hold steadfast to the notion that the team will move to Brooklyn, the NJ Nets will be playing 2 preseason games at the Prudential center. The first of these two games is next Tuesday night against the Boston Celtics. See the article from the Star Ledger here.
A strong turnout (for a preseason game) is expected. If I were Jeff Vanderbeek I’d buy a few thousand tickets and hand them out just to pop the attendance numbers.
