Nets to get new "Super Hero" mascot ...and anthem... Saturday

Brooklyn Nets

The Nets are rolling out both a new "super hero" mascot AND a new team anthem on Saturday as part of Opening Night. Both were originally to be revealed at the Nets - Knicks game on Thursday. When Hurricane Sandy having intervened, the team shifted their roll-out to the Raptor game.

Specifically, the Brooklyn Nets Super Hero will be unveiled just before the Nets pre-game player introductions. Although the team has been close-mouthed about the Super Hero/Mascot, reports indicate he will be a Knight, possibly named "Brooklyn Knight" or "Brooklynite" and was designed by Marvel Comics, designers of super heroes from Spider-man to The Hulk to Captain America.

The team will introduce its new anthem entitled "Brooklyn: Something To Lean On" written and recorded by Brooklyn’s own John Forté, a Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter, and producer. Forte' is a close friend and former classmate of Chris Charlier, the Nets chairman.

In addition, the Net will be wearing their home white uniforms for the first time.

Also announced: The U.S. National Anthem will be sung by Chrisette Michele, an R&B singer-songwriter, and the Canadian National Anthem by Lorenzo Bell. Also, Brooklyn Nets Opening Night Commemorative t-shirts will be distributed to every fan in attendance.
