Hurricane Sandy could not delay the return of professional sports to Brooklyn. The NBA announced Tuesday night that the Nets’ season opener against the NY Knicks at Barclays Center Thursday night will go on as scheduled, despite the devastation.
The game will mark the return of major professional sports to Brooklyn for the first time since the Dodgers bolted Brooklyn for Los Angeles back in 1957.
The Nets may be the best team in New York. The Knicks final 15-man roster has an average age of 31.25, one of the highest of all time and the NBA’s oldest this season. Five players are over 35 years old. Amare Stoudemire turns 30 in two weeks, meanwhile he will be out 6-8 weeks because of knee surgery.
As a life long Knicks fan, the reality is they are not even close to closing the gap on the Miami Heat or even the Boston Celtics. My prediction is 47-35. They should win a playoff series their first in 12 years.
Friday's Class C and Class A Section V Finals at Sahlen Stadium have been rescheduled to Sunday, November 4th due to school closings because of Superstorm Sandy. LeRoy will take on Hornell at Noon. Canandaigua faces Eastridge at 3:00.
