Today, July 13, Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz hosted a public celebration at Borough Hall Plaza to welcome Brooklyn’s Backcourt—DeRon Williams and Joe Johnson—and give fans an opportunity to visit The EXPERIENCE, the Brooklyn Nets/Barclays Center interactive mobile unit. Check out photos of the trio and more below!

Attendees also included Brooklyn Nets General Manager Billy King, Brooklyn Nets Head Coach Avery Johnson, Brooklyn Nets and Barclays Center CEO Brett Yormark, Brooklyn Nets Public Address Announcer David Diamante, and the Brooklynettes, the Brooklyn Nets dance team.

“I’m thrilled that here in Brooklyn—aka Kings County—we’ve got The Kings Of the NBA: All-Stars DeRon Williams and Joe Johnson,” said BP Markowitz, “and with Brooklyn’s Backcourt leading the way, those Manhattan Knicks don’t stand a chance!”
