Now that the Barclays Center is up and running, and the Brooklyn Nets are midway through their season, it’s time to take a look back on the remarkable impact this development has had on the Brooklyn community.

In this video, “Road to Brooklyn: A Final Look Back,” you’ll hear commentary from an array of people: franchise managers, Nets dancers and players, Brooklyn residents, and Barclays center construction workers. All of them share in the excitement and pride that surrounds what has become an iconic moment for Brooklyn – the development and creation of an identity, a logo, and a team that is theirs.

Members of the community comment on how the Brooklyn Nets logo is “everywhere right now,” and how this may be the “biggest, most powerful, global, iconic change in sports.” Another person notes that “the Brooklyn Nets probably have more pressure on them than any team in the NBA because of the city they’re in.”

Check out this latest Life+Times video, an inspiring follow-up on Hova’s earlier Brooklyn-based documentary, “Where I’m From,” which focused on the construction and creation of the Barclays Center.
