Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, along with being a friend of The Brooklyn Game, is no enemy of bluster and puns. After the Brooklyn Nets won Game 6 against the Chicago Bulls, Markowitz didn’t eschew his lifelong trend.
“Our Brooklyn Nets’ exciting win last night in the Windy City really ‘blew’ me away—and now we are coming back to Barclays Center for the most important game in Brooklyn Nets history!” Markowitz said in a prepared statement. “In Saturday night’s game seven, with the loudest, most in-your-face fans in the country ‘blacking out’ Brooklyn, there is no doubt the Nets are going to give the “flu-ey” Bulls the medicine they need—an early exit from the playoffs and a one-way ticket back to Chicago for some rest and relaxation.
“Bring on the Heat and watch out Lebron James, because after this series the Brooklyn Nets have ice in their veins and are coming to ‘cool’ you down.”
This isn’t the first time Markowitz has let loose on his favorite basketball team: Markowitz earlier this season accused Knicks fans in Brooklyn of “treason” against the borough.
