The Nets Shop by Adidas opened early Monday to lines of eager basketball fans looking to get the first peek at jerseys, basketballs, sneakers and other apparel emblazoned with the team's black and white logo.
Outside the store, Bed-Stuy resident Winston Gladstone proudly displayed his haul: A $30 basketball signed by Brooklyn Nets player Brook Lopez and a $32 tank top for his 18-year-old daughter.
"I think I made out pretty well," Gladstone said.
Crown Heights resident Jamila Hanley and Lloyd Hercules of East New York said they were ready to root on the Nets as the countdown began to their first game in Brooklyn against the New York Knicks.
"Bring it on," Hercules said.
