Our house is a very, very, very fine house

Rod Boone via Twitter

The New York Times and The New Yorker take looks at the Nets experience in Barclays Center and record their impressions of the house that Bruce Ratner and Mikhail Prokhorov built, from "The Vault" to the practice court.

Among other things, Howard Beck writes of what the players on the Wizards told their hometown paper. "It’s definitely going to be one of those grand stages," Martell Webster told The Washington Post.

"Their floor is dope. The arena is dope. It’s a cool place to play," Trevor Ariza added. "I think this city of Brooklyn is a proud city. They back anything that comes out of their city, they rep it, they love it with all their heart."

Reeves Wiedeman of The New Yorker takes more notice of the technological advances at the arena, from its now-famous "black box theatre" lighting and notes that the Nets want their fans to be into social media. Why else the presence of MetroPCS charging stations.
