Nets Comic Books Are Latest Newcomers to the N.B.A. Library

“From Walt Whitman to Jonathan Lethem, Brooklyn has served as a muse to a string of celebrated writers. The Nets, although new to the borough, have also inspired writing, in a less highbrow genre than poetry or the novel: comic books. It started with the Nets’ new mascot, BrooklyKnight, who was lowered from the ceiling of Barclays Center before the team’s season-opening win over the Toronto Raptors. Applauded by some, derided by others, the black-and-chrome BrooklyKnight superhero is far more intimidating than the team’s former mascot, Sly Fox, and the Nets made it clear that he was not to be trifled with.”
