Yup: a Nets chant, in TD Garden, while the Knicks are playing the Celtics.
Before the Nets moved to Brooklyn, one of their official slogans was “It’s All New.” It always rung hollow, because the team was awful and the overall mood was dominated by the simple fact that the franchise never cared about New Jersey. But now? It really is. And that’s awesome.
Edit: an earlier version of this listed the game at Madison Square Garden. That was incorrect. My apologies for being an idiot. I am still excited about this.
