Brooklyn has long been touted as the hippest borough in New York City (they roll up their pant legs there, those hipsters!), and the intro video for the relocated Nets reflects that rep. The video is completely black and white, featuring select Brooklyn landmarks and slow-motion walk-bys of Nets player dressed in their Sunday best. The song that plays throughout, from Brooklyn’s own John Forte, includes a bellowing chant of ”Brooooooklyyyyyn,” adding to a video that is already dripping with class. The Brooklyn Nets mean business, and that message comes through loud and clear in an intro video that almost has too much swag to handle. Jay-Z wins again.
We recently took you behind the scenes to view the making of the Cleveland Cavaliers' excellent intro video, but obviously the Cavs aren't the only team that knows how to get a crowd hyped up. There are 29 other teams in the league, and all of them do their best to whip 20,000+ fans into a frenzy before each tip-off. Whether with good music, fresh concepts or dapper players, these organizations are bringing the funk to pregame festivities.
