The 42-year-old NBA minority owner held a press conference this morning to announce the team’s name change from New Jersey Nets to Brooklyn Nets, which doesn’t even sound right.
He also annnounced that he would be performing 8 concerts to welcome the newly renamed team to its new home at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.
In an effort to draw the big corporate money to Brooklyn, the team also announced it’s selling “all-access” passes to the team’s VIP lounge. The VIP passes, which can be yours for only $15,400 a pop — will also give you backstage access to Jay Z’s 8 concerts. Not bad for $15K.
Oh well, I guess I’ll be watching the Nets from my home screen from now on.
