Yesterday I was listening to ESPN NY (now 98.7) and rolling around in my bed hearing bits of pieces of the commentary every now and then. However, one thing caught my attention.
Needless to say, I was stunned. Granted we don't (or didn't) get much coverage despite playing in the largest media market in the world, but the tide really does appear to be turning. Considering this is the same station that gave nearly constant updates of the Carmelo saga last year but nary a peep about Dwightmare this season (except for Stephen A. Smith) , this is a serious about face.
ESPN NY will still be the home of the Knicks, but the fact that for the first time in forever they are acknowledging the Nets in ad does show just how much of an impact Brooklyn is having. And to think, we haven't even played a game yet and still don't even know what our jerseys will look like next season. Between the increase media attention, merchandise sales, and the anticipation in a brand new stadium, I'm sure Yormarket must doing backflips right now in his home.The Nets are indeed coming. And it appears not even ESPN NY wants to be left on the sidelines next season.
