It's been a long time coming. He's been waiting for it a lifetime and tonight, Jay finally got to live out his dream, as he cheered on his own Brooklyn Nets at the Barclays Center. The joy on Jay's face during the chants of Brooklyn were priceless and B chimed in with the crowd each time they chanted Broooklynnn.
Jay & B sat court side and enjoyed the game with friends Ty Ty and Mike Kyser. Before the game Jay spoke with Commissioner David Stern. While B chatted a few minutes with Chrisette Michele.
It was a nostalgic mood for a borough who has been waiting for this day since their beloved Dodgers left. And a time for New York to enjoy and celebrate a new beginning, which is much needed since we are a city who is still suffering from Sandy. And the Nets, like the Knicks the day before didn't let New York down.
The Nets beat Toronto 100-107. It was an impressive game, but they're going to have to work on moving the ball more and upping the defense. The talent is there and it looks like it will be an exciting season. I look forward to watching them grow as a defensive unit and team.
Check out pictures of the Carters below. And check out the Nets' new mascot, Brooklyn Knight --a super hero that was created with Marvel Comics --the NBA's first.
