Unless you count the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest held annually on July 4th, Brooklyn hasn't been the site of a major sporting event for almost 60 years. That was set to change on Nov. 1, when the Brooklyn Nets were scheduled to host the New York Knicks.
Unfortunately, Hurricane Sandy had other plans, and the highly anticipated game was postponedafter a request from New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, with no new date announced thus far. Regardless, it should still command a high ticket price once it's rescheduled.
"The first edition of the intercity rivalry between the Knicks and Nets is fetching a pretty penny based on the fact that this is a basketball city," Matcovich said. He believes that with the newly opened Barclays Center infusing the borough of Brooklyn with basketball fans, matchups between the Knicks and the Nets will become "the new subway series."
