In addition, several former Nets who are still playing or coaching in the NBA will sending along video tributes for the events, among them reportedly Jason Kidd. The event will also honor the tenth anniversary of the Nets first trip to the NBA Finals.
Other than Kittles, there will be appearances by Derrick Coleman, Kenny Anderson, Kendall Gill, Chris Morris, Darwin Cook, Otis Birdsong and two players who both played and announced for the team: Mike O'Koren and Albert King. Gary Sussman, the Nets longtime P.A. announcer, will man the mic for the last game in New Jersey.
Some of the former Nets who are still active but unable to attend are Buck Williams, who's an assistant with the Trail Blazers, Vince Carter of the Mavericks, Kenyon Martin of the Clippers, Richard Jefferson of the Warriors and Keith Van Horn, who is being honored by his alma mater, Utah.
