The Brooklyn Nets are set to release their game schedule Thursday night during a live broadcast on NBA TV.
The Nets will play their first season in New York City's most-populous borough this year, so the release of the team's first official schedule is considered a major milestone to Brooklynites who haven't had a professional sports team for decades.
After revealing the game schedule via NBA TV at about 7 p.m. the Brooklyn Nets planned to host a live "broadcast" on the team's homepage, in order to provide more information and celebrate the historic day.

"We are excited to introduce the first call from Brooklyn in dramatic fashion," Brooklyn Nets CEO Brett Yormark said, according to Fishbowl NY. "The stage is set for Opening Night and we are thrilled to share this historic moment with the borough and NBA fans worldwide."
The first game at the Nets' shiny new arena in Downtown Brooklyn, dubbed the Barclays Center, will be on Nov. 1 against the Knicks in a historic contest set to be broadcast nationwide on TNT.
The last time Brooklyn had a pro sports team was in 1957, the year before the Brooklyn Dodgers Major League Baseball team moved to Los Angeles.
