Remember the last time they had the All-Star Game in New York? Let John Amici and Scoop Jackson take you through it in this weird British broadcast of the event. David Stern’s plans and more after the jump.
You ever pay 100 bucks for mediocre seats to watch the Brooklyn Nets at the Barclays Center and have to take a dump because of those $18.50 Red Hook Lobster Pound’s lobster rolls you ate before the game? But you don’t want to go and pay away that precious $20 of value for the 10-minute trip? Now you’re in luck. A new app will let you watch the Nets from the toilet. Or elsewhere, I guess.
Slick Rick Gives Awful Performance At Nets-Knicks Game, Guy Filming YouTube Video Wonders Aloud If He’s Drunk
Last night, Slick Rick gave a terrible performance at the Barclays Center during halftime of the Knicks-Nets game. It was so bad, that Frank Isola of the New York Daily News questioned Rick the Ruler’s status as a hip-hop legend. As you can tell by the amount of crap Isola caught for making this statement, it wasn’t a popular one. While we don’t agree with Isola — the guy who made “Children’s Story” is a legend, terrible live performance be damned — Rick’s showing at Barclays last night was certainly… not his best. And by “not his best” we mean he sounded like he had just taken a whole mess of Ambien.

Despite lingering effects of Hurricane Sandy, the Brooklyn Nets will open the Barclays Center Thursday night against the New York Knicks, according to NBA Senior Vice President for Basketball Communications Tim Frank.
The Barclays Center was unveiled today in Brooklyn, and Mikhail Prokhorov is already propelling its historical magnanimity to the heights of the Brooklyn Bridge. Except after reading this tweet from Amy K. Nelson, we’ll liken it to Rikers instead.
The Barclays Center, home-to-be of the Brooklyn Nets, was a controversial building before it even was a building. And now that it’s up, people are starting to raise more questions, like: “Why is it rusting?” The rusting is on purpose, but is it actually doing the building any good? Not, as best we can tell, if you have eyes.
Nets Owner Mikhail Prokhorov Calls Knicks Owner James Dolan “That Little Man,” Is My New Favorite Owner
In September of 2012, the Nets will open their new home in Brooklyn, called the Barclays Center. Artist renderings from inside Barclays have been released, and principal architect Gregg Pasquarelli says the interiors focus on “bringing the energy of Brooklyn street life into the arena,” using a “simple yet tactile palette of industrial materials.” Which we think means it’s a chromier 40/40 Club.
