The NBA Comes to Brooklyn

Here is the first center jump ball as the Nets begin their life in Brooklyn in their new building, the Barclays Center.
The Brooklyn Nets played their first game in their new home - The Barclays Center.  This fan was among the many thousands to turned up for the tip-off wearing brand new Nets gear.

It rained and the slick streets helped add to the scene as fans make their way to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

I had a seat upstairs and took this shot during the pre-game introductions at the Barclays Center prior to the first big time professional sporting event in Brooklyn since the Los Angeles Dodgers moved from the borough after the 1957 season.

The new basketball floor at the Nets' new home, the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, has a herringbone pattern which is unlike any other floor design in the NBA.

The water on the metal traffic blocks outside the Barclays Center helped provide a nice frame at the bottom of the photo.

These three Lakers' fans were in attendance at opening night of the NBA pre-season at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn.  They looked ... a little ... out of place!  But at least they got their limit in the beer line.

The famous Brooklyn deli, Junior's, has a concession stand at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn.  These cupcakes were a nice treat.
