Lifelong Nets fan here (since '95), born in Brooklyn, raised in Long Island, living in Brooklyn again. Could not be happier that my team is moving to my borough despite all the backlash. I am considering putting together a Brooklyn-based basketball tournament for younger players and was wondering a few things:
1) Do any Brooklynite Nets fans have an interest in putting together such an event in the next few months? Leave your email address below and I'll contact you with more information.
2) Does anyone have any contacts in Brooklyn basketball? (high school coaches, community leaders etc.) I want to see if the tourney would generate interest throughout Brooklyn.
Hopefully this could tie in to the Nets move. If you're interested in helping me and want more information, leave your email and I'll contact you. Living in Brooklyn, having ties to basketball organizations in the borough or New York City as a whole, and experience with non-profit organizations and event planning would all be a great help. Hope to hear from you guys.
Go Nets. Let's get Dwight.
