Blueprint for Greatness billboard New York Knicks Brooklyn Nets

So, that’s the billboard really, seriously currently being applied across the street from Madison Square Garden, featuring Nets owner and Atlantic Yards late game investor-savior Mikhail Prokhorov and his buddy Jay-Z outlining their “Blueprint for Greatness” (for non-Jigga fans, this is a pun on his trilogy of Blueprint records).

Could this be a power move to undermine the hapless Knickerbockers’ ongoing Lebron James courtship? (Curbed)
