Brooklyn writer wants any Nets championship parade in the borough

Debby Wong-US PRESSWIRE

Daily News columnist Denis Hamill admits, "We’re jumping way out in front of ourselves here," but he's claiming some Brooklyn turf just in case the Nets bring home the Lawrence O'Brien Trophy. in June.

"Forget the Canyon of Heroes," he writes Tuesday. "Brooklyn should parade in Brooklyn ... they should have a victory parade in the footsteps of the 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers from Brooklyn Borough Hall over to Flatbush Ave.

"They should march straight up the spine of Brooklyn to where Flatbush Ave. meets Atlantic Ave. and to Barclays Center, home of the Brooklyn Nets."

It's not that anyone has proposed a trip up Lower Broadway if they win. In fact, we're sure that Brett Yormark has a contingency plan all ready if this happens, with Brooklyn's Bill DeBlasio greeting the team on the steps of Borough Hall rather than City Hall. DeBlasio, in fact, is on board, reports Hamill.

"Definitely Flatbush Ave. in the footsteps of the 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers!"  the Brooklyn mayor said.

Seems just a bit premature, but Hamill, a native Brooklynite, just wants to make sure that things go right "if all the planets line up over Kings County."
