Training camp opened up yesterday for the NBA so the enthusiasm in New Jersey for the new look Nets is absolutely positively the talk of the town. Forget the Jets or Giants or the Mets collapse, or even psycho Stephon the Big Apple is buzzin over Brook Lopez and Chris Douglas-Roberts... or not. It looks as if the New Jersey Nets aren't getting quite the Season Ticket Holder bump from the addition of Yi Jianlian as hoped, as they are already putting up a deal on Travelzoo for 50% off tickets for 23 of their home games. They only play 41 total home games the entire year, so... I'm guessing they expect no one to show up for any of their games at full price. That move to Brooklyn probably can't come soon enough for the miserable Nets.
