Jay-Z discusses “Brooklyn Nets”

Jay-Z sat down with Good Day New York this morning to announce that the New Jersey Nets will be renamed the Brooklyn Nets when they take over the new Barclays Centre in Brooklyn as their home next year. Part-owner of the basketball team, Hov also told Fox that he would be opening the building with a concert series, “maybe like eight”.

This is obviously important for the Brooklyn native, who says “I’m really giddy right now.” Jay-Z tells Rosanna Scotto of Good Day New York “Biggie had a line ‘spread love that’s the Brooklyn way.’ It’s a deep love we have for our heroes. We walk around with that.”

This is just another step in the series of big moves the soon-to-be-father of Beyonce’s child has been making lately. The team will also be sporting all new colors and Jay-Z will be the face of the team’s new marketing campaign.
