Since the weekend I've been trying to post an outdoors take on the biggest press conference in Nets history. The one that was bigger than the Doc signing. Yeah, there was a buzz, but few knew just how incredible he, or the ABA as a whole, was at the time. The one that was bigger than the Kidd trade. Yeah, he was a top PG, but few knew just how profoundly he could transform the pieces around him.
The one that was even bigger than the "Plan B" signings of Outlaw and Petro. At the time, and on this site, I immediately called it "Plan F." Although, with respect to certain over-the-counters, "Plan B" was pretty fitting. But that's the past. This presser was about the immediate future. About a hundred Nets fans stood in the hundred degree weather to watch on the big screen.
Unfortunately, every time I try posting the photos, I get this message:
Uh oh, something went wrong. We've been notified about this problem and will investigate shortly. Thank you for your patience.
I'm not sure if it's the site or my computer but either way, I can't attach any photos to this FanPost. So, as much as I appreciate the "oops" and "uh ohs" and the "oh noes" from other messages, I've decided to come up with my own Plan B. Here's a link to a Facebook album featuring the press conference from an outdoor's perspective:
I'll post a couple of the better shots directly under this in the comments section. Oddly, that still works. Enjoy!
