Remember back in June, when the brash new Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov put up a billboard of himself and Nets part owner Jay-Z overlooking Madison Square Garden. Underneath is said “Blueprint for Greatness.”

The Nets real blueprints are being used for their new building under construction in Brooklyn, at the Atlantic Yards.

Which is right where the Knicks have put up a billboard with the face of Amar’e Stoudemire that says “Brooklyn Represent.” (Via Nets Daily and Brooklyn Trolley Dodger)

Let’s all be thankful the Knicks did not go with a five-story tall picture of owner James Dolan.

Point made. And clever. Although, a funnier move would have been a billboard outside the Prudential Center in Newark. Where the Nets will actually play games this season and next.
