Although the fans in jersey have stayed with us, and they watch us on. Yes. If they're not in the building so jerseys an important part of our past. But it's all about the future. It's all about Brooklyn. I followed i-in eagle at Syracuse university. And I answer. I mean every time I see I and I'm just like my God. How long have I been doing this then and he and he doesn't age on? He does it. He does not age in. He's been, you know, the voice of the nets for a long time and just a great partner. But when you think about Brooklyn, you think about the nets, first and foremost. That's sort of the core tenant, but we're talking boxing. You're talking shows and concerts, you really have to wrap your arms around entertainment entertains at it's entertainment at the highest levels. We, you know, the building was built for the Brooklyn nets. But we're a lot more than just basketball. I mean, we have a boxing franchise we have a concert business of a family show franchise. We're big in college basketball. In addition to obviously, the Brooklyn nets and for the last couple of years, we've had islander's hockey. So we're busy building. But you're you're absolutely correct. It's all about entertainment. And it's it's been a great run next week will be six years in Brooklyn our six year anniversary. It's been that long. Six years already seems like yesterday I was living right in the shadow of the Barclays center when it was going up, and we were so excited about being able to go to professional sporting events, right down the street and the moment it opened call from the landlord. Hey, by the way, your rent. It's going. So we stuck around long enough to see the opening Jay Z concert. Well, it, you know, the building has been a bit of a catalyst for the renaissance is always sold that way. Not always the result. That's correct. That's correct. But you know, our goal is not just about the venue is about job creation. It was about affordable housing in the mix. Use development was the vision that Bruce Ratner had and it's probably taking a little longer for to all come to fruition. But when you go down flatbush today at that intersection of Atlantic avenue. We've created a community and one that we're very proud of. So Brett before we go any further we learned a lesson a couple of weeks ago, we had Oscar de LA Hoya on he did not tell us. He was considering running for president. We were bummed about read that boilerplate question rows. Considering running for president. I am not. Okay. Granted. I don't think Oscar de LA Hoya should either. By the way, we're seeing about what one hundred feet from Mike. Bloomberg's. There's somebody who might. When you bring a sports team to Brooklyn or any city, whatever, and you just you touched off onto about the jobs that it brings about the money that it brings into that community. Can you expand more about that all of a sudden little hoot Robinson's bar, or whatever it is by all of a sudden now that's the hang out spot. Well, I mean when you recreate a community and we did with the building Barclay center. It should be the economic engine for debt for the downtown area. And I think it has I mean retailers are experiencing growth like they never had before housing. If you go down flatly avenue. I mean, there's rig rigging everywhere. I mean, new housing has started obviously over the last eight or nine years, and he continues just job creation, generally speaking. I mean, we've over two thousand part time jobs that we've been able to create it Barclay center as well as many full-time jobs, and then the housing on the arena block and heading east were a part of the division. In that Bruce Ratner had to. So it truly has served its purpose. Not only about bringing sports entertainment back to this great borough of Brooklyn. But also from a peripheral standpoint, creating jobs, creating housing and most importantly, just creating opportunities. I wasn't making up by the way who'd Robinson that we used to be a bar at the old tiger stadium back in Detroit. Michigan and Trumbull. And that was I mean, and now the the place it wasn't, you know, elaborate, but it like norm from cheers you walk in. Everybody would go to who'd Robinson's there when it was at the old Michigan and Trumbull once they moved and they went into the downtown area that was it for the bar. And I just wonder when when a team moves. It's there's a lot of fought that goes into it. Absolutely. Brooklyn knows a finger to about teams moving away. Well, you know in many respects, we are the dodgers. He was nineteen fifty seven when the dodgers left. The market had been under served in in so many different ways sports entertainment, and we in in many respects, I think brought it back up next Scott Eboni continue our conversation with BSE global CEO. Brett, yo Mark about the entertainment momentum to Barclays center. Our vision on the entertainment side is in many respects to create a progression ladder up to Barclay center. And the goal is how do you connect with artists early and often their careers that them start at Webster, then go to paramount and make their way right up to Barclays. You're listening to Bloomberg business of sports from Bloomberg radio around the world. Michael Barr on Twitter can catch all my cat video at big bar, and you can follow Evan Novi Williams. Thought was my pal at Evan. Underscore ready. You're right. You're on my side. Underscore at Evan underscore. And I'm Scott.

"Tomorrow. It was my generation. And so he's got to take care of them. And. John brought the Morial his a hearts and the lives of people. I try to remember that the memorial is a heart full of loads of people. But what about the generations to come? The ones who were born after the fall of Saigon after the fall of communism teenagers at the wall today can barely grasp the enormity of that conflict over well-meaning to see all the names, and I couldn't wrap my mind around how many people is names belong to. I feel very sad for all the loss lives in all the people that lost a loved one. A lot is at stake in how these kids and future generations react to the wall. And some people continue to worry that this dark geometric structure might be conveying a message that's incomplete. The problems they saw were was that it wasn't celebrate Tori that it made fighting and dying in an American war seemed tragic historian Kristen, Haas the idea of millions of school children year after year, going to the National Mall and standing at the Vietnam memorial and thinking, this is what it means to be an American soldier produce a lot of anxiety on the part of the people who were trying to recruit those kids to be in an all volunteer military. After the wall was Bill, there was still space on the National Mall. So other veterans lobby tad, their own memorials royals. That would convey an unambiguous message of patriotism in nineteen ninety-five, the Korean war Veterans Memorial was dedicated. It is dominated by figurative sculptures, portraying a platoon on the March nine years after that, a neoclassical World War Two memorial was finally added to the mall, professor, Maryland young. All these to me represent. I will the mole as war theme part which is disturbing enough, but also it's failure. The failure to make Vietnamese down in quiet. She has to keep building things on top of it to say no to it. Jan Scruggs in the Vietnam Veterans. Memorial fund are trying to have the last word on the mall right now. They're building education centre across constitution avenue that will be a supplement to the wall, the head to its heart we will have within this the photographs of casualties. We now have thirty thousand of photographs of the fifty eight thousand. We need values like honor and loyalty and duty will keep fading in and out with these haunting photos back in the early eighties Scruggs fought critics on the right who didn't like this severe black design. Now he's facing down some critics on the left like university of Pittsburgh historian, Kirk, savage. What this visitor center about is is about is really trying to kind of normalize the war to make it part of a patriotic narrative of military service that starts from the revolutionary war in that goes up to the present day in Afghanistan. And that's not at all what the original conception of Morial was. They originally conception of the morale was that this war was a different kind of War. I, the reason the whole reason that it it required a monument was that it was uniquely traumatic in American history and uniquely traumatic for the soldiers who fought in it. It's not partisan. It's just straight history. It is just straight who served who died and what was the history? What were the facts? Former Defense Secretary, Chuck Hagel is the Vietnam veteran. When he was in the Senate, he wrote the legislation that created the education center. You focus on the warrior, you focus far more on the individual who gave their lives. Wars are not partisan me as far as I know, and every war I've ever known about read about in the War I served in Republicans, died, Democrats die, independence die, atheist die, Buddhist die. Every. Nobody dies in in everybody serves, but professor via tongue. Guinn says the Vietnam memorial already focuses on the warrior and by being such a powerful tribute to soldiers, he thinks it makes us more supportive of wars in general. It becomes very difficult to oppose a war, but also to support the soldiers who fought the war and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial has been key to that kind of narrative because what it's done again is to allow us to forget the divisiveness of the war and to remember the American soldier as someone who is beyond reproach and that kind of contradiction, I think has been one of the reasons why perhaps antiwar movement in the United States has not been as effective as it as it was during the Vietnam war. Antiwar pro-war. The wall has been like a mere to America's complicated and conflicting sentiments the real impact of mile. End's design is how it's changed the way we mourn as a nation. Early on veterans were asking before it was built. What do you think people are going to do when they first come here? And I wanted to say they're gonna cry, but I knew that that would make even stranger than I, I'm sure they already thought it was. There are now echoes of Maya Lin's work everywhere. The memorial at the World, Trade Center features, the names of the dead at in Blackstone. For me, the names were key to about individuality of each person to and there's nothing I think more personal than the name that we carry. Michael rod design, the nine, eleven memorial. You're giving your name at birth and you. You grow into that name. And if you change your name at some point in your life, that is a momentous occasion. And I wanted to do that. I wanted to to Mark about this collective loss by also individual OSs that that one by one by one created this. This tally. Jay. George, this is what warrior is the series of deaths day after day after day. Anyone can relate to a name if you've given birth to a child. If you've held a baby in your arms, if you baptize someone and say, I name you. This wall will break your heart. I think that's what people remember one hundred years from now. Ause mo.

"Time. From the time the wall open people were putting paper and pencil up against the letters, carved into the granite. They rub impressions of the names of their husbands, fathers sons, daughters, siblings, and friends. Twenty three. And I love it when it rains looks like the wall is we thing. Lou Palmer was posted inside gone. A journalist in the early nineteen seventies she has dedicated herself since to helping men and women who were undone by the war. It's positioned in such a way that here you see the Washington Monument in this panel, and here you can see the Lincoln. These men and women who were reviled and stigmatized are joined with the two greatest presidents in our history. I, I visited the wall for a story. I was writing for time magazine, the nineteen eighties shortly after the statues of soldiers had been added to the grounds, I wrote around the statue people talk louder, breathe easier, snapped vacation photos, unselfconsciously eskimo pies and Fritos. But it's the wall that veterans approaches if it were a force field, it's at the wall that families of the dead cry and leave flowers and mementos and messages the way Jews leave notes for God in the cracks of Jerusalem's western wall. The important thing to know about the Vietnam Veterans Memorial is that it made memorials matter. Again, historian Kristen, Hus says, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial changed the way we grieve and public. The practice that is ubiquitous now of at the sight of some kind of public tragedy. People bringing their teddy bears and their toys and letters and flowers. It's everywhere. It happens all the time now, but it didn't happen in public places in the United States before miles memorial, which is amazing. This time when I visited, I hardly even noticed the teddy bears and flowers and letters that visitors left at the wall because that's what I expected to find the journalists. Laura Palmer has been obsessed with those objects since she first visited the wall and nineteen eighty six. And in talking to the park ranger that day, he told me that everything that's left at the wall is saved. And at that moment. I knew I knew I had to see that material. That material, thousands of personal objects is saved at the national parks museum resource center in Maryland. The collection inspired Palmer to write a book called shrapnel in the heart letters and remembrances from the Vietnam Veterans Memorial one chilly day. I drove out to the museum with pomp. She spent a lot of time there back in the late eighties when she was writing her book, it was early in the collection. So there were no rules. You didn't have to sign forms. You didn't sign this. She just kind of had to say, hey, could I come out and look at the stuff touching the objects is a little like a sensory time machine. There was a heavy green poncho with a peace symbol painted on the back. There was a nineteen sixties Pakisi Gretz smoke, camels filtered lucky strikes. This, this are up so antique a mint condition pack of lucky strikes. You could get anything with cigarettes can get out of duty. You could do anything and in jungles. I mean, we have a cigarette in here in cases in aim wet, and in ain't broke. That was the value of cigarette that is Duri felt the museum resource Curators. This collection is more than misery, war and death. And I'm gonna say this the people, this collection is also celebration of life, and you certainly do, yes, there. When did you serve nineteen sixty seven first infantry division and do do go to the wall. Sometimes. Perhaps. Dury was more eager to talk about this odd singular museum. He overseas than his own wartime experience. He showed us around the warehouse when, okay, we start here. These ought to blues. This is a tiger Kate. This tiger cage was something left at the, yes, it was used in a POW m I a commemorative raid. These blue boxes are out down. The roles is like a canyon. This is a grand k- blue boxes. This archaeological site is being created self-consciously in real time. Everything that gets left at the wall comes here. We looked at wedding photos, lighters, replicas of military vehicles. There were handmade memorials like a pair of muddy boots, glued to a plaque, one person left a copy of pro-war book shot full of holes. It would sue Dushi. It will draw you in this is a living collection plus always tell. People about this collection, that things in him militarily should not be in here. If you're in the military, these things are not given. They are earned the medal of honor dismantles in general, say, when people pass away the bequeath to their families, the service organization that people coming and leaving these metals at a at a federal site. So Durrie. As the vet this. What does it mean for you to be here day after day after day? Well, one very few times that general, my personal thinking. Vietnam there about eight million people who served on what's known as the Vietnam war. And of that eight million about three million were in-country Vietnam veterans. And I've often wondered about even at the lower cream million number out of three million people how in the world. And I ended up here. What does it mean to be here. Helped a lot of people now have helped me.

"She said the proposed changes toward Zayn made it look like a putting green my the architect designer who won the original competition in October nineteen eighty two month before the dedication. She spoke in an open form these intrusions which treat the original work of art is no more than an architectural backdrop reflect an insensitive to the original design, subtle spatial eloquence, and the statues mealy eight feet tall or taller than most of the wall for most of its length. These intrusions rip apart the meeting of names destroying the meaning of the design. The chairman of the federal commission of fine arts had the final say, and he went with Maya. Lin's com. Car heart felt betrayed. Once again, the fine arts commissioners moved the flag in the statue off into the woods and took them away from the vendors Morio and I, I still find it an offensive slap in the face. Sympathy with that reaction from the get-go. It was a very unusual design the night before the dedicating. I went on site and this enormous veteran. Practically verbally pin me at the apex and was just yelling at the top of his lungs. I mean, he was just attacking about, you know how dare I do this and. And all I can think of is. It was working. Because it was point out in incredible amount of emotion. That emotional power ended up winning over the American public. The wall may not glorify this war, but it does glorify the people who fought it. And those fifty eight thousand names on the wall were our people. Coming up saw drum distance. As you to the wall.

We're looking at one of the most controversial and brilliantly successful works of public art in American history. The Vietnam Veterans Memorial, how did a design that initially shocked and upset? So many people so quickly become kind of sacred space almost universally loved the story. Kirk savage says that before it was built, critics of the wall were only reacting to a design proposal. You really have to go to the National Mall to feel its power to be convinced you almost lose your connection with the mall. Traffic noise is diminished. The soundscape changes. The space feels more quiet more intimate. You start out in just a little. It's just not so bad. Is it Maryland? Young teaches history. At NYU, and then you keep going down. And that moment when the wall rises above your height with the names of the dead, when you're standing at the center, you are six feet under, you know, you're sort of literally buried with that list of names. I see the names of. Twelve guys who died on January twenty first of nineteen seventy and their names are right next to each other. So really does take back in time.

In my mind, my husband is still twenty. Four still looks twenty four but I'm seventy one. I was going to come to Vania mind, do this was in nineteen sixty seven, and I'm standing there waiting for them to call the bus reunion town. And all of a sudden I heard this boom, a soldier had dropped his luggage, just to get her attention. And I said to him a complete stranger. Said, if you're ever in Washington call me, here's my number. And then when I got off the bus, I said. Even know his name. And so about a month later than the phone rings and he said, this is black. Well. And I said, like, well. And that was in in December? Yeah. And that November we were married. Now, I know he knew he wasn't coming that because the last time he came home, he says, if if something happens to me, although nothing is, would you remarry? Again, that's the furthest thing for some of his mind. And he says, always remember as long as you stay in my name, the army will be there for you for the rest of your life. I made sure his name was here that other people came for me just to make sure it was here, but I do not want to see it took me three years and it was unbelievably emotional.

Before the wall was an icon before it was even a design competition. The Vietnam Veterans Memorial was a cause championed by a single Vietnam vet named Jan Scruggs. I've gotten to the point in my life where I have sort of become an urban myth. Jan Scruggs had been a rifleman with the US army's hundred ninety nine th light infantry brigade, like a lot of at Phnom vets in the nineteen seventies. He felt loathed it worst neglected at best.
