(NY Islanders Barclays Center's Seating Chart thanks to the blog - Islanders Point Blank)In a press conference earlier today, the relatively newly minted Brooklyn Nets revealed the new logos for the team. In the event, the franchise's CEO Brett Yormark explained the origin of the logo and had plenty of early merchandise for sale behind him. The excitement for the team to get started in the new arena is at an all time high. But as the NBA franchise begins to settle into their new home, there are plenty of New Yorkers that are wondering - will the New York Islanders be their roommates?
Arena developer Bruce Ratner hopes so.
It isn't a secret that Ratner has expressed his seal of approval for the hockey move. He has declared that the state-of-the-art arena is easily capable to host both basketball and hockey games. The first test to prove this statement will be in September, as the Islanders will be playing the New Jersey Devils at the arena in a preseason game.
