Theme after first preseason game from both sides of the fan bases:

Nets:
•Good- Cam needs minutes he's for real. Sap going to be very useful. Marks is God, find gems anywhere.
Bad- Nic needs to improve.
Lakers:
Good- THT is God send. Monk can play
Bad- DJ is trash, we need reliable starting five. D12 is D12 :lol:

Had another really fun at "Practice in the Park". We got to Brooklyn Bridge Park at about 10:45 and we in the first 15 people on line. They asked for a vaccine card and ten they give you one of those paper bracelets that you get in a hospital. Met a lot of die hard Nets fans on the line. Then we waited until a little after 12:00 and they let us in.

The first three rows were reserved for so called "VIP's". I saw names on the chairs like "Chinese Influencers" and "Media". Security wanted everyone in the first three rows to wear a mask. We sat in the forth row almost dead center. It was definitely the biggest crowd so far at "PINTP" and we have been to all four of them.

The Nets were announced to the crowd at around 2:00. Kyrie got the biggest applause from the crowd. Everywhere you looked you saw a star, LMA, Blake, Patty. They organized a game of "Climb the ladder", where you had to make shots from the free throw line, the top of the key, the bottom of the half court logo and then a half court shot.

After that they played a game of Knockout. While Kyrie was lined up there was some little kids holding Kyrie's brand shoes. And Kyrie came over and signed them for the kids. He signed about 10 things but he was getting mobbed by kids and went back to his place at the game. I took a picture and I will post it

I wanted to make a video of Kyrie signing the kids shoes and send it to his Dad, but I didn't have it on video....I choked...lol

I did take a video of the guys right before the team photo. Thats coming also...
