Those "First Home Game since 1957" signs? The Nets pay $25 for putting them up in store windows

Atlantic Yards Report

You couldn't pay us to root for the Brooklyn Nets, but that sentiment is apparently not universal.

On his I Love Franklin Avenue blog, Nick Juravich writes:

Those "First Home Game since 1957" signs that have popped up all over? The Nets pay $25 a pop for businesses to put them in the window (as a local business owner informed me). A lot of money and legwork, but still probably cheaper than a 30-second TV spot.

I suspect that street team has made certain streets a priority. I've seen a few of the signs on Smith Street, but Coney Island Avenue--not so much.
