There has been much talk of the importance of keeping Deron Williams and how, in the view of some (especially the main stream media), that is 100% correlated to the long term viability of the Brooklyn Nets. While I personally sincerely hope Deron Williams resigns, and in my judgement it would be one of the greatest superstar athlete blunders in the history of sports if he DOESN'T, the reality is it doesn't matter. The Brooklyn Nets are going to be as iconic and appealing of a destination for fans and players alike, more than most currently acknowledge and many (including myself could ever have imagined). Just look at the events of the last month. Add to that what I am about to share with you and maybe, just maybe, some of you will join me on my lonely island of Brooklyn Nets bliss.
Yesterday I had a very extensive tour of our soon to be completed home and it is this magnificent place that will truly be the icing on the cake. If you are interested I created a detailed interactive tour which I would recommend you all checkout:

Because After Decades of Battling...........The Brooklyn Nets are Home
This my friends is the truth. The battle is over and we have won by reaching the promise land. The Nets will fufill their destiny to be true rivals to the Knicks, Lakers and Celtics. The Nets will continue to grow their fanbase and evolve into one of, if not the, most rapid fanbases in basketball. It just doesn't matter whether Deron, or any other player for that matter agrees, with this because it is a force that cannot be stopped and will grow with talent who does see what is going on and CHOOSES to play a part in this.
Stay strong and stay proud. See you in November, game 1, 1st of our future string of sellouts and blackouts.
