Barclays Center releases December 2019 event calendar: 19 events, notably basketball and concerts (including Kyrie Irving Invitational)

The Barclays Center has released its December 2019 calendar, which this year has no hockey, given the disproportionate number of New York Islanders games at the Nassau Coliseum.

It includes 19 events in 19 days, including six Brooklyn Nets games, two college basketball events,  two high school basketball events (Battle in the Apple, Kyrie Irving Invitational), one wrestling event, one boxing night, and seven concerts, including New Year's Eve with The Strokes.

There are no tickets on sale at this point via Barclays for LIU basketball, though the LIU web site says they're available on game day at the arena or by calling the university.

Nor are there tickets as of now for the Invitational. (Update: There's an app, from Nike.) This is the second year for the tournament sponsored by Irving, with Nike, who last year played for the Boston Celtics. Notably, the chatter at the time was about him being coveted by the Knicks, who he easily spurned for the Nets.

The Battle In the Apple was organized last year by the NBA's Danny Green (with Puma). Last year he played for the Toronto Raptors, this year he plays for the Los Angeles Lakers.

December 2018 

The December 2018 calendar included 22 events in 22 days, including nine Nets games, three Islanders games, two Michelle Obama book events, two high school basketball events, one Harlem Globetrotters game, one boxing night, and four concerts, including New Year's Eve with Post Malone.
