Nets give "Brooklyn" a chance

At center court Friday, in seats provided by Billy King, sat a young couple, Ken & Michelle MacIver, all dressed up in Nets gear. Ken, a Brooklyn native, moved to Detroit to marry Michigan native Michelle. They named their daughter Brooklyn. Little Brooklyn wasn't at the game, staying with her grandparents instead.

The story, as Sarah Kustok noted, doesn't end there. Brooklyn MacIver was celebrating her second birthday Friday and getting ready for her eighth chemotherapy treatment just after Christmas. She was recently diagnosed with cancer.  King provided the family with the seats and a gift bag and spent some time with them.

It's not the first time the Nets have quietly acted with kindness towards those less fortunate. Good on them.
