They won a home can.
And the nets would be that home team in some respects will be the new Dodgers.
And we've been seeing the brand in Brooklyn for for years and we can't get there soon enough.
I think quite if you were fans from New Jersey will follow us we'll give them -- good reason to do so in a last year New Jersey next year.
But there are a lot of people in Brooklyn that want us there queens.
Long Island -- can go back to the roots of our brand.
To say you have a history there are docked at any -- -- Long Island -- NBA and everything else but.
You have to -- right to do it so you you brought in one of the best point guards in the NBA at liberty agrees to Deron Williams is a great player.

That it is about the global brand and anger you -- your presence in Russia and China and so how do you.

Aspire to be global obviously the team was in Russia this year we -- in China we played regular season games in London.

It's a question of their -- the arena in Brooklyn -- question about a local partner will be more than just that the basketball in NBA basketball.
