Lawrence Frank loves new Barclays Center
When The Palace opened in 1988, it was lauded as a state-of-the-art facility and regarded as one of the best in the NBA.
Almost 25 years later, time has caught up with The Palace, as have newer arenas, including the new home of the Nets, the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
"It's a beautiful building," said Pistons coach Lawrence Frank, who coached the Nets for seven seasons. "This is my second time here — I was here for the opening."
Barclays seats about 18,000 and has 101 luxury suites, four bars, three lounges and a restaurant franchise of Nets co-owner and rap mogul Jay-Z.
