Deron Williams’ first Nets event in Brooklyn will be remembered forever by many local families.
The team’s superstar point guard, along with Jordan Farmar, Johan Petro, and Jordan Williams, served up hearty holiday meals and handed out wrapped gifts right before Christmas.
The Nets joined Brooklyn Community Services and sponsor National Grid to help celebrate the holidays with more than 200 families … the Bed Stuy Family Center hosted the event, with face painting and festivities while the team served up eats from Miss Lily’s.
Monday December 26th is opening night of the 2011-2012 regular season … the Nets’ last year in New Jersey. The Barclays Center opens for Nets basketball in Brooklyn fall 2012.
