The Empire Strikes Back!


Last July, you may recall, the Nets angered Jimmy Dolan by papering over the side of a building opposite the Garden with their 1,200 square foot "Blueprint for Greatness" poster. Now, reports the Brooklyn Trolley Dodger blog, Dolan has struck back!

On the side of a wall inside the footprint of the Atlantic Yards, the Knicks have put up a much smaller wall poster, featuring Amare Stoudemire in front of the Manhattan ...not Brooklyn... Bridge. It reads, "Brooklyn Represent - You, Us, We, Now".
