Now that the Nets have a home base in Brooklyn they are the first professional sports team with a Brooklyn base since the Brooklyn Dodgers up and decamped to Los Angeles in 1957.
They have been involving themselves fully in the life of the Brooklyn community with a special emphasis on the arts.
This Saturday both the Brooklyn Nets and Rapper Fabolous are supporting a sneaker art competition at the Cyber Cafe at LIU Brooklyn.
It’s no secret sneaker design, decoration and the wearing of sneakers is at the centre of much youth culture in Brooklyn and New York generally.
This competition will be for kids from 14 to 21 and over and Nets players and Fabolous will be on hand to judge the show and hand out prizes to the winners.
For further details see here. Go along and see the kids do their stuff and mingle with players and Fabolous
