Brooklyn native Jay-Z rocked the Barclays Center last night in it’s first ever event, and rightfully so. Making this dream become a reality since 2003, there was no one better to kick start not only this historic era of the Barclays Center, but Brooklyn basketball as he was the one to reveal the brand new Nets jerseys on stage. Nets players Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Keith Bogans, Stephen Dennis, Josh Childress, Carleton Scott, Tornike Shengelia and Jerry Stackhouse were all in attendance for the memorable event.
“I’ve been on many stages, been all around the world, nothing feels like tonight. I’ve performed at the Grammy’s, I’ve performed at Glastonbury, I tore Coachella to pieces…nothing feels like tonight Brooklyn, I swear to god.”
