Some fans may have concerns about opening Barclays Center with the Knicks, but Deron Williams likes the idea and adds a little dig at the Nets cross-river rival.

"It’s going to be great," Williams said from London. "It's going to be special. Number one, just to open the arena is going to be a great experience. And playing against the Knicks just gives it that much more meaning."

And he noted, even if Knick fans show up at Barclays on November 1, things will be different. "When we come to the Garden there are going to be Nets fans there," the Nets’ point guard said on Friday. "So it's going to be different."
