Nets Advertising Near Madison Square Garden

It’s another L for the Knicks, who now have to look at their cross-town rivals on their way in to work every day. Reports the NY Post: “Upstart New Jersey Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov has penetrated New York’s shabby defense with a towering 225-foot mural touting his team just yards from where the Knicks hold court. Prokhorov teams up with hip-hop mogul Jay-Z on a mural proclaiming ‘The blueprint for greatness.’ It looms above Madison Square Garden on Eighth Avenue and 34th Street with the heading ‘the blueprint for greatness’ and a Nets logo that’s bigger than a backboard.”

    I like this. This means war. This young billionaire is brash and he wants to make noise.

    I’ll try and get a pic of it to post here during my lunch break, just so we have a visual. I feel the post photo isn’t capturing the entire view.

    Pretty bold putting a Nets banner so close to Mecca. So I guess the last two seasons were not part of the blueprint.

    mike pro and jay z as owners a coach that has won 67 games in one season. Two promising young bigs a quick point who clearly can’t be the no.1 guy but who’s a good piece 30 mil on cap space and a move to brooklyn after the next two seasons. The Nets are gonna be a good team sooner then later. Why isn’t charlotte trying to up their stakes with an MJ sign? I’m sure nog everyone knows what he’s up to but they do know who he is.

    plus Jay-Z is involved. That’s a Hip-Hop move right there.

    Damn Matt, you were right, those Post pics definitely did not do it justice. Man, Miki P and Jay-Z are as cold as ice! I’m obviously rooting for my Bulls to bring in the best free agents this summer, but I really hope the Nets do well as well. I’m diggin’ their owner’s style.

    jay z is a bandwagoner, where were u when ur nets where losing about 20 straight games. not courtside for sure, u were at knick games for some reason. now when ur courting lebron and ur team can be good u come back and support them. great owner you are, probably own only like 5%. a real owner sticks with his team when they suck, jay z wasn’t at any nets game this year unless lebron was playing. lets just hope prokhorov is different than this poser like owner jay z is. stick to music man.

    John, Jay-Z is Brooklyn, through and through. The Nets are moving to Brooklyn. Saying Jay-Z is a bandwagoner is like saying all the OKC fans are bandwagoners. If anything he’s on the bandwagon early.
