A number of people are working themselves up into a state at the thought of the Nets opening the season in Brooklyn against the Nicks.
According to Newsday, the Knicks will be the Brooklyn Nets' first regular-season opponent in their new home, the Barclays Center, on Nov. 1.
It's all part of a calculated program to build the hysteria. The Brooklyn Eagle describes Nets owner Prokhorov's billboard outside Madison Square Garden, proclaiming the Nets' 'Blueprint for Greatness,' featuring a photo of himself and minority owner Jay-Z. The Knicks responded with a TV promo claiming, "Hey Nets. You can walk like us, you can talk like us, but you ain't never gonna be like us."
Commenters at SlamOnline express their opinions as to who is the better team.
