NBA assessing whether to cancel Knicks-Nets opener after Sandy
The NBA is assessing whether to cancel the season opener for the Nets and Knicks at Barclays Center on Thursday.
In the wake of Superstorm Sandy's impact on the East Coast on Monday night and as New York starts to pick up the pieces and assess the damage, there is the question of whether the NBA will hold the season opener for the Nets and Knicks on Thursday night in Brooklyn. Subways are still flooded, and there's tremendous property damage.
The New York Times reports the NBA is still considering what to do about the first game in Barclays Center.
No definitive word from NBA on Thursday night's opener at Barclays Center. They are assessing.— Howard Beck (@HowardBeckNYT) October 30, 2012
Obviously, if subways aren't running by Thurs, it would be awfully tough for fans to get to Knicks-Nets game. Roads would be rough, too.— Howard Beck (@HowardBeckNYT) October 30, 2012
The last thing the Nets want for their grand opening is a half-full arena. There's just a lot to sort out after this kind of natural disaster and way more important factors than the game. Nonetheless, we'll keep you updated on the status of Thursday night's contest and if the Nets get to show off their fancy new digs on national television.
