Tuesday at 4 p.m., Doug Overton will tip-off the Nets "Passport to Fitness" program at PNY Center by leading a fitness clinic for 30 kids from Big Brothers Big Sisters.
Wednesday at 9:30 a.m., across the Hudson and East rivers, Bobby Marks will open a refurbished playground at P.S. 9, not far from the Barclays Center construction site. The playground is partly paid for by the Barclays Nets Alliance and developed with Out2Play, which transforms asphalt lots into playspaces. Media has been invited to both.
