However, due to some lousy weather, many people stayed home and the Nets drew an announced 9889 people to watch what Nets Daily described as Harris Scorches Kidd and Mavs, a sign that the trade has worked out quite well.
(ESPN's Mark Stein says Harris, so far, is the league's Most Improved Player.)
The AP reported:
With so many seats unfilled, the Nets allowed fans sitting in the upper section to move to the lower bowl during a second-quarter timeout. (Pregame photo.)
Is that the future of crowd management in low-attendance arenas? I suspect it will be reserved for special cases, like last night. Otherwise it runs the risk of making those paying full freight feel like suckers.
