HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS — And you were worried about missing out on the Nets’ big debut.
There’s no need for that, not with the fourth season of NBA TV’s The Association: Brooklyn Nets chronicling the team’s first season in their new city and new digs at the Barclays Center.
One of the most intriguing teams in all of sports will be in the spotlight on one of NBA TV’s franchise shows, with the Hard Knocks-style look at the new-look Nets of Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Gerald Wallace, Kris Humphries and Brook Lopez leading a team that is prepared to challenge the Heat, Celtics, Pacers and the Big Apple-rival Knicks for one of the top spots in the Eastern Conference.
The Nets have a new roster, new arena, new city and a host of new challenges ahead of them. And we get to see it all up close and personal, the same way we did the Lakers in Season 1, the Celtics in Season 2 and the Nuggets last season. The season debut is Oct. 16 at 10 p.m. ET. And the series will include multiple shows on NBA TV as well as original webisodes NBA.com throughout the season.
Using the past seasons of the show as an indication, the Nets will be must-see-TV all season long:
“I think it’s great that the NBA will be documenting our inaugural season in Brooklyn as part of The Association,” said Nets’ three-time NBA All-Star and two-time Olympic gold medalist Deron Williams said in a statement released by the league.
“As we make history bringing a professional sports team to Brooklyn, fans will get to have an inside look. Our new home, the borough of Brooklyn, will provide a great backdrop for the series, and I think people are going to be pretty excited with their exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the new arena.”
Featuring the dynamic ownership of Mikhail Prokhorov and Jay-Z, veteran basketball leadership from General Manager Billy King and Head Coach Avery Johnson, and established NBA stars such as Williams and the newly acquired Joe Johnson, the Nets have been one of the most talked-about teams heading into their first season in Brooklyn.
“The Association is part of NBA TV’s commitment to deliver original programming, which provides fans with authentic access to all aspects of the game,” said Christina Miller, Senior Vice President and General Manager, NBA Digital. “We’re thrilled to have the Nets involved this year, during an historic period for the franchise, and look forward to covering them through the journey of their inaugural season in Brooklyn.”
