Nets to be featured in 'The Association'
By Mike Mazzeo
The Brooklyn Nets will be featured in NBA TV and NBA.com’s fourth season of “The Association.”
The first episode of the behind-the-scenes series will debut on Oct. 16 at 10 p.m. ET.
“I think it’s great that the NBA will be documenting our inaugural season in Brooklyn as part of The Association,” point guard Deron Williams said in a statement.
“As we make history bringing a professional sports team to Brooklyn, fans will get to have an inside look. Our new home, the borough of Brooklyn, will provide a great backdrop for the series, and I think people are going to be pretty excited with their exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the new arena.”
“The Brooklyn Nets are honored to be selected by the NBA as the featured team in this year’s installment of The Association,” GM Billy King said. “We are very excited about our first season playing in Brooklyn at Barclays Center, and this series will document superbly this historic move for the Nets’ franchise.”
This is the fourth straight season that the "The Association" has followed a team. Previously it spotlighted the Los Angeles Lakers (2009-10), Boston Celtics (2010-11) and Denver Nuggets (2011-12).
