I seriously need to buy tickets to see the Brooklyn Nets play because your pretty much guaranteed to see the Carters their. Last night Beyoncé and Jay-Z watched the Brooklyn Nets smash the New York Knicks. In just four months Beyoncé will be returning to the music scene on February 3rd to preform during the halftime show at the Super Bowl. Then kick over to February 16th we can catch her HBO documentary airing.
Also rumor has it that Beyoncé will be debuting a new single during the Superbowl halftime show. I could see this being very much true since this would be one of the highest platforms any artist to debut a new single. Seriously do you know how many people watch the Super Bowl? Knowing Beyoncé she’s going to reap all the benefits from this launch into her next album.
I wonder what they were talking about here because the look Beyoncé is giving Jay-Z in this picture is priceless.
Another riveting episode of The Association! This week's installment follows the Brooklyn Nets through a 4-game win streak, culminating in their primetime showtown with the Boston Celtics just the other night on Thursday. I continue to be impressed at the lightning quick turn-around from the NBA. As a result, this is as current as a reality show can get. Enjoy!
Episode 3 of the NBA's gripping reality series The Association premiered this weekend and this week's spotlight of the Brooklyn Nets follows the team during the first week of games - their delayed, yet successful home opener against the Toronto Raptors and two crushing losses to the Minnesota Timberwolves and Miami Heat. There are glimpses of the ups and downs, more on the team dealing with Hurricane Sandy, and some humorous locker room moments throughout. The Nets are a great team to follow this season and this week's latest episode illustrates just that - watch above!
The NBA's official reality series, The Association, is simply put: a must-see show. Think NFL's Hard Knocks but for the NBA. And for the entire NBA Season. The last two years chronicling the Boston Celtics and Denver Nuggets have been fascinating, but they aim to raise the bar even higher with this year's look at the Brooklyn Nets. With everything surrounding their move to BK, their overhauled roster, and the high expectations to perform under this new spotlight, there is sure to be some intriguing drama and ups and downs that unfolds this season.
In fact, episode 2 already does an amazing job capturing their unique tale... and the season had yet to start. The Nets had to directly deal with the effects of Hurricane Sandy last week as it postponed their much hyped home debut against new crosstown rival New York Knicks, and even kept backup rookie point guard Tyshawn Taylor trapped in his Hoboken apartment for three days. The episode follows both Tyshawn and how the coaches and GM handled the situation (and showcased it just a day after it all went down as the episode premiered Friday). In addition to Sandy, the episode captures the last days of training camp and the pre-season as the team is cut down to 15 players and their superstar and grizzled veteran, Deron Williams and Jerry Stackhouse respectively, are spotlighted. This was a fascinating episode so be sure to catch on above and start setting your DVRs for next week's.
Tonight at the new Barclays Center, Jay-Z performed the first of two shows to break in the new Brooklyn arena. He not only debuted a new verse a few hours ago, but also donned the first Brooklyn Nets jersey - wearing number #4, which is his and the wife's lucky number (born December 4th and September 4th respectively. The number is retired for Wendell Latner). You can see him rockin' the away threads in the grainy clear photo below (updated via NBA) and see the official images the NBA just put out above. The unis are now officially on sale.
I was expecting something a little more abstract, but I do dig the font choices and you can't go wrong with a sharp black and white fit. Your thoughts on the uniforms?
A few years ago we had the Dallas Cowboys introduce us to what technology can offer in sporting venues now a days. But move over Dallas, the Brooklyn Nets are trying to take that crown with their new high-tech arena, The Barclays Center. Check out the video above, as we get an inside look into what the center has to offer to its fans and what we can come to expect. Dopeness!
TIBS UPDATE: Another Brooklyn Nets tidbit I saw today, courtesy of the NY Post, was the unveiling of the Brooklynettes (I see what they did there) uniforms, designed by David Dalrymple, who designed Britney Spears' controversal costume from the 2000 VMAs. Not really a fan of those striped pants as I'm not the first one to say that it reminds me of a prison guard uniform. What I am a fan of though: the Barclays Center. Super dope video above, spotlighting the arena and it's cutting-edge technology (the oculus looks incredible). For a closer look at the fresh parquet of the court, click here.
