From Jesse Blanchard of 48 Minutes of Hell.

Anybody who watches Brooklyn Nets games knows this is painfully true *cough* 39% on field goals *cough*
Oh excuse me, I’ve got a touch of the flu *cough* 30% from three *cough*
Oh dear, I can’t seem to shake this *cough* 81% of free throws *cough* 17 PER *cough* Not bad, just overrated *cough cough*

Mark Anthony Green talks to the Nets’ co-owner on the five coolest things about his new franchise:
The jerseys: “All-black everything! And the lettering—the typography reminds you of the old subway. It’s classic.”
The court: “It’s herringbone, which is crazy. In fact, the NBA fought me on it. They said if it gets shot on TV, the lines will mess up the screen. I’m like, this ain’t 1988—we’ve got HD. We ended up taking it to the old arena in New Jersey to test it.”
Barclays Center: “It’s beautiful, amazing, really well-done. It’s just classy. It’s still an arena, so there’s only so much you can do. But for an arena, it’s actually really beautiful.”
Brooklyn: “Well, Brooklyn is cool; that’s like the definition. There’s nothing on earth cooler than Brooklyn.”
Jay-Z: “Me? Ha, I am Brooklyn.”

Not mentioned: Any of the actual players on the Brooklyn Nets. Awkward…

Spike Lee gets ragged on a lot, sometimes fairly, sometimes not. One thing is for sure: he is a Knicks fan, and he likely will be for life, and he doesn’t give a fuck about no Nets.

What he said about the age differences re: fandom is interesting though. “I understand if I’m ten years old, livin’ in Brooklyn, I’m gonna want to be a Nets fan. You have your own team! But I’m 55. I grew up with [the Knicks]”

Bless his heart, Spike Lee loves his Knicks. Good on you, my man.
