Commercial breaks, timeouts and halftime are the best opportunities to take a bathroom break or hit the concession stands when you attend a sporting event. It’s the only way to assure that you don’t miss any of the action, and if you paid good money for a ticket you want to get the full experience. However, these are the times when bathroom and concession lines are the longest. Fear not, Brooklyn Nets fans — you guys are covered.
According to The Verge, the Nets launched a new addition to their Barclays Center smart phone app on Wednesday night that allows fans to stream the games for free on their iPhone or Android device while inside the stadium. This means that any time a fan gets thirsty or needs to use the restroom, they can simply pull the game up on their phone and continue watching while they are away from their seat.
And that’s not all. If you happen to miss something — say while the dude at the beer stand is taking your order — the app allows you to rewind up to 30 seconds of missed action. It also allows you to switch between four cameras, some of which feature the regular TV broadcast views and others that stream from GoPro cameras mounted around the arena.
The app is powered through Cisco’s StadiumVision Mobile, which incorporates an advanced “multicast” system that is supposed to remain uninterrupted even if 19,000 people are using it at once. It sounds so advanced that I’m fully confident a Nets PR team that sends tweets like this had nothing to do with developing it.
It may be disturbing to some, but we live in a world where people’s faces are constantly buried in smart phones and tablet devices. If you’re thinking people don’t need WiFi and live-streaming games on their phone while they’re at an actual sporting event — think again. All stadiums and arenas will likely have this at some point. The Nets are simply ahead of the curve.
Deron Williams has consistently been an all-star throughout his career. So after managing to put up averages of just 16.7 ppg, and 7.6 assists so far this season, Williams missed his first all-star game in years. As questions about his weight and injuries continue to float around someone finally decided to come to the defense of Williams. His coach.
Per ESPN, PJ Carlesimo made it...
Nets’ head coach P.J. Carlesimo described Deron Williams’ ankles as “not good at all” in an interview with ESPN radio on Thursday. The point guard will receive cortisone shots in both ankles Thursday.

Nets’ GM, Billy King, informed the local media that Joe Johnson will not play Friday night against the Houston Rockets due to plantar fasciitis.
Johnson’s foot became distressed after the win over the Bucks on Wednesday and he did not participate in the team shoot around on Friday. King is not worried about the injury being a long-term issue, and thus, Johnson is listed as day-to-day.
I think Brooklyn Nets guard Joe Johnson has firmly put himself into the conversation of most clutch players in the league. Last night while facing the Milwaukee Bucks, the Nets found themselves down 3 with 6.7 seconds left. Check out the video courtesy of That NBA Lottery Pick, to see what Joe did next.

The Brooklyn Nets have enjoyed a nice run since leaving New Jersey. In fact, the team is undefeated when winning at the end of games -- remarkable.
Apparently, the Brooklyn Nets were interested in Paul Pierce. However, the Boston Celtics have no intentions of trading Pierce. At least not to the Nets and not for what was offered.According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the Celtics like Pierce. They understand his value, and they understand he is what will keep Kevin Garnett happy. Really, the Celtics would...
The Brooklyn Nets have been incredibly active in trade talks but have not been able to acquire anyone with their not-so-glamorous package of Kris Humphries, MarShon Brooks and a draft pick. They wanted Dwight, then they wanted Josh Smith, and now they are trying to acquire a player GM Billy King wanted last season, Turkish stud Ersan Ilyasova. According to ESPNs Marc Stein:
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Five points separated the Nets and the Bucks in their home-and-home set, and Brooklyn came away with two straight last-second victories.
Deron Williams scored 23 points and the Nets escaped with a 97-94 victory on Wednesday night after Milwaukee's Monta Ellis missed a chance to tie the game with three foul shots in the final seconds.
"We did a good job...
From Woj (who else?)
The Boston Celtics and Brooklyn Nets have discussed a trade for Celtics star Paul Pierce, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. The Nets’ offer centered on forward Kris Humphries, guard MarShon Brooks and a first-round draft pick, but the Celtics want a more substantial package to consider moving Pierce, league sources said. “The Celtics still highly value Pierce...
The Nets are offering Kris Humphries, MarShon Brooks and a first round pick for Paul Pierce.
Billy King is not concerned about the severity of Joe Johnson's foot injury.
Every morning, we will give you five things from the night before in the NBA to start your day.
1: Joe cool
Joe Johnson has the reputation of being an isolation player. That is just what he has always done. You give him the ball and he scores. It is not always efficient and it is not always pretty. His trade to Brooklyn has been a mixed bag so far. He has not quite delivered...
