Annnnnd... We’re back! The NBA Preseason officially kicks off Friday night as the Brooklyn Nets open the doors at Barclays Center to take on, hold on, let me check - says here... Sesi Franca Basquete.

Not sure who he is, but...hey, let’s go with it!

Actually, Sesi Franca Basquete is a club is based out of Sao Paulo, Brazil and tonight will be the first time they’ve ever played against an NBA team.

WHERE: YES Network

WHEN: 7:30 PM

WHY: We back!

Game Preview:

The club does have a reputation for finding talent. A player we might become familiar with in the future, Didi Louzada, played for Sesi last year. He was taken at No. 35 in the Draft by New Orleans and stashed in Sydney. Here’s a little bit more on the New Orleans Pelicans’ draft and stash.

Although not a veteran of Basquete, the Nets assistant coach, Tiago Splitter, will be a center of attention as the NBA’s first Brazilian assistant coach. The game is being broadcast nationwide in Brazil.

Hey, it’s basketball, right? Let’s go.
