Several heavy-hitters including rap star Jay-Z, who is part owner of the team, was at the ceremonial groundbreaking of the new home of the NJ Nets.

The Nets are coming to Brooklyn! The event is at the future home of the Barclays Center at Atlantic Yards in Brooklyn.

Construction of the sports and entertainment arena is loaded with controversy. Residents in the area who have been opposed to the plan since it was announced several years ago say that affordable housing should be in the construction plans.

Real estate developer Bruce Ratner has proposed building office towers and apartments.

Members of 'Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn' have scheduled a mock burial at the groundbreaking ceremony using three-foot-tall bobbleheads depicting state and city officials.
