The Nets announced Wednesday they are providing 1,500 free tickets over the next two months to unemployed fans who submit resumes to the team.
The NBA team plans to send the resumes to its 120 corporate sponsors and a couple hundred firms that own season tickets.
"Our belief right now is let's invest in people who might invest in us later," Nets chief executive Brett Yormark said in a telephone interview. "In doing so, we can help people who need it most."
Yeah New Jersey is having trouble filling seats and yeah they're definitely getting something out of this but still, in these troubled times, every little bit helps.
