Nets to hold pep rally in Newark


Nets to hold pep rally in Newark The Nets have not wavered from their insistence that "there is no Plan B" beyond their intention to relocate to Brooklyn.

But that hasn't stopped them from scheduling three events in Newark this month.

The first, announced yesterday, is a "Netstoberfest" celebration at the entrance plaza outside of the Prudential Center tomorrow from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m.

That will be followed by an Oct. 13 preseason game against the Boston Celtics and an Oct. 21 preseason game against the Knicks, with both games being held at "The Rock."

"We're promoting our preseason games in Newark," Nets spokesman Barry Baum replied when asked why the rally is being held neither in Brooklyn nor their current home of East Rutherford.

Netstoberfest is a free pep rally that will feature Sly the mascot, the Nets dancers, music, giveaways and Basketball games, such as Pop-a-Shot. Food and drink will be available.

Attorneys for the Nets' planned Atlantic Yards project in Brooklyn have a key road trip of their own coming up -- an Oct. 14 visit to Albany for oral arguments before the New York Court of Appeals about whether the use of eminent domain at the site is permissible.

The Nets are expected to remain at Izod Center at least through the start of the 2011-12 season. The franchise is trying to break ground on the Barclays Center in Brooklyn by the end of this year.

That relocation hinges on both the court case and approval of a proposal by Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov to acquire an 80 percent interest in the Nets .

NBA commissioner David Stern told The Times of London on the eve of today's preseason game in London between Chicago and Utah that his office would conduct a background check of Prokhorov that was "full and intrusive."

"It's very strenuous regarding financial ability, character and business dealings," Stern said.
