First up...The Brooklyn Nets.
As part owner of the former New Jersey Nets, Jay-Z announced monday that the Nets will find their new home beginning in 2012, you guessed it, in Brooklyn! Now there are bound to be all kinds of haters coming out of the woodwork on this one from borough organizations, to fans, to plane ol' haters but at there's gotta be at least a few people like me that think it's good. I mean come on, who didn't love the Brooklyn Dodgers?
Try to forget that if still around today they would be every hipsters favorite baseball team. Luckily the Barclays Center is located in the Boerum Hill area of Brooklyn, a safe 20 minute trip up the BQE from Williamsburg, and hipsters only pretend to like sports. Jay announced he will personally open the Barclays Center with a special concert series when the 18,000 seat arena opens in September. But not content to take a backseat now that he officially has achieved ultimate baller status and actually owns a basketball team, Jay is going one step further and helping to design the uniforms. Now you know that's gonna be dope.
Here's a Jay-Z classic to take you out.
