Jay-Z Is Officially Moving The NJ Nets To Brooklyn
Since he paid a reported $4.5 million to become minority owner of the New Jersey Nets, Jay-Z has been trying hard to move the team to Brooklyn; which is where he was born. Starting in 2012, the rapper’s dreams will come true and his team, now being renamed the Brooklyn Nets, will begin playing games at Barclays Center, which is currently under construction in Brooklyn.
â€œI asked for two things: One is that we name the New Jersey Nets the Brooklyn Nets and the second is that I open it [Barclays Center] with a concert,â€ Jay-Z said.
In addition to hosting NBA games, Barclays Center will also host concerts and college basketball games.
