[With the Brooklyn Nets winning their pre-season home opener Monday night, "Brooklyn Nets" hitmaker D. Chamberz reveals he is, in fact, the infamous construction worker who released the arena's photos last month.]
Those photos [of the Barclays Center] were me. That was me. That was me. Listen. SOHH, you're actually getting the first live situation. I'm telling you, right now, before Barclays stepped in the building and handed it over to the city, 'cause you know we were union workers, before we stepped over to the stadium, I had took at least a million pictures and I got photos from when it was like nothing in there, when it was the hockey floor that was under there.
People didn't even see the different things that are under that basketball court. You understand? I took those pictures of the building because I knew it was going to be a part of history and then the other thing that I actually did was sent them to [radio personality] Angela Yee. She was actually the first one to tweet it and then I seen Channel 12 and I seen the Daily News and then I seen it just go crazy.
But of course you had people who were rooting for other teams and just making it seem like the Nets were going to be like the New Jersey Nets, what their record was. But at the end of the day, we got a team in Brooklyn and that's what matters the most.
I'm glad I'm the first one to actually do the ["Brooklyn Nets"] record. I'm glad it went viral and I want more people to understand that Brooklyn, we're growing as a whole.
