Last July, you may recall, the Nets angered Jimmy Dolan by papering over the side of a building opposite the Garden with their 1,200 square foot "Blueprint for Greatness" poster. Now, reports the Brooklyn Trolley Blogger, Dolan has struck back!
On the side of a wall inside the footprint of the Atlantic Yards, the Knicks have put up a much smaller wall poster, featuring Amare Stoudemire in front of the Manhattan ...not Brooklyn... Bridge. It reads, "Brooklyn Represent - You, Us, We, Now". (We think "Huh?" might be the next word in the progression, but that's just us.)
Psst Jimmy. You're a bit early. The Nets don't play in Brooklyn til 2012. They open in NEWARK Wednesday night. Mikhail Prokhorov, through a spokesman had "no comment on that." Brett Yormark, however, could not resist: "I’m glad to see they know where Brooklyn is. Clearly, they know what’s coming."
Meanwhile, the Knicks intend to take Timofey Mozgov, their rookie Russian center, on a tour of Brighton Beach, Brooklyn's Russian enclave.
