Brooklyn Nets vs. Chicago Bulls Series Preview

8 of 9

Brook Lopez and Deron Williams

From a Brooklyn fan’s perspective: 

Nets fans have every reason to be excited about this series. It will be the first playoff series in Brooklyn in over 50 years and it will be the Nets’ first playoff appearance since 2007. This is the best team we’ve had since the days of Jason Kidd and despite all the ups and downs, this has really been an extremely successful season.

The Nets were one of the least popular teams in the NBA last year in New Jersey and now are selling out nearly every night in Brooklyn. They are top 5 in the NBA in terms of merchandise selling and Barclays Center has proven to be arguably the best arena in the NBA. I expect the Black House to be rocking on Saturday night.
