With the ribbon ceremony out of the way, it’s officially time for the new BK boys of Barclay’s Arena to finally take the court, but before they do, of course, Jigga has to bless it in a way only he can: throw a few concerts. That will all be done in a couple of days, and gearing you up for the [official] opening, a video clip has surfaced of the 18,200 seat state-of-the-arc arena, and, it’s looking mighty lovely…if you ask me.
The Brooklyn Nets hope that having the most technologically-advanced stadium in sports bodes well for the future of their team. It took nine years and numerous court battles to build Barclays Center, but the 1 billion dollar building was finally unveiled to the public last week. Aesthetically, the structure is an organic ode to the future — metal plates of varying sizes, curves and flowing lines — most notable for the Oculus, a gigantic 360-degree high-definition display that will show live game footage, movies and even art installations. Within its walls, some 18,200 fans will enjoy free Wi-Fi, food and beverage apps, and 8,000 square feet of LED signage. Watch the video above for an in-depth glimpse into the Nets’ new high-tech home court. Brooklyn, it seems, does go pretty hard after all.
