They lined up along Flatbush Avenue waiting for Irina Pavlova to cut the ribbon on the new Nets Shop by adidas, then 300 of them poured in, to browse the Nets gear (no uniform jerseys just yet) and get autographs from Brook and Brooks of Brooklyn, Brook Lopez and Marshon Brooks.
"It's so awesome, just seeing all the fans in here," Lopez said. "They lined up outside excited to get inside here, excited to get stuff and represent their team. We're all in this together. It's something special to see." The 3,200-sq. ft. store will be open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, as well as during Nets home games. It will be accessible from both the street and the arena concourse.
