Brooklyn Nets Need A Strong Start
The Brooklyn Nets are keen to impress in their new city and are aware that winning matches is key to attracting fans and making money.
However, they have a tough start to the season.
Their first game is against another New York team, the New York Knicks who already have a supportive home crowd. However, the Nets are favourite to win, at bwin they have odds of 6/11 while the Knicks have odds of 6/4.
Given the team’s history of losing the last thing they need is a slow start to the season.
Player Gerald Wallace said that the team knows “things can get ugly real fast. After all, this is New York. New York is known for having the most crazed fans as far as they’re on your one minute, they’re against you the next minute – depending on if you’re winning or losing.”
A lot of money and effort has been put into the team’s move to Brooklyn and the team needs to build a fan base quickly if they’re going to be successful.
Another player, Joe Johnson, has set a goal of winning 50 games, he said that “We definitely want to come out and get off to a hot start.”
The team are certainly facing a great challenge to keep the support going.
