Well, it sounds like you will be able to fulfill that dream this season.
Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment (BSE), Mikhail Prokhorov's parent group for the Nets, Barclays Center and Nassau Coliseum, and QuintEvents, a packager of unique events, have launched "BSE Experiences," a new program designed to deliver "customized premium fan experiences" for a wide variety of events at Barclays, including Nets games.
Details so far are sketchy but a team spokesman tells NetsDaily that among the "one of a kind experiences with Nets players," the BSE-Quint partnership will offer "games of HORSE with a player, training with a pro and special hospitality opportunity, to name a few.
Of course, the BSE Experiences won't be limited to the Nets. According to a press release earlier this week...
Experience packages will include a variety of special perks such as walking to the ring with top boxers, such as World Middleweight Champion Daniel Jacobs; private sound checks for shows booked through BSE's Brooklyn Direct programming platform; exclusive artist meet & greets; parking where celebrities park; one of a kind experiences with Nets players, Islanders legends, and college basketball coaches and personalities; VIP dinners; and access to private entrances.
It will not be cheap. There are no details yet on what game of HORSE will cost you, but a BSE Experience with Barbra Streisand next month is going for $6,990. It will include front-row seats, a pre-concert VIP dinner, a meet & greet with Barbra, and parking under the arena, by elevator. It's been reserved for team buses and equipment trucks. Not everyone is wowed by the deal. Norman Oder, critic and chronicler of Barclays Center and surrounding Pacific Park, suggests there could be traffic issues at the parking garage entrance.
Let's see how many ticket packages they can sell.
