Lakers Won and Belly's Getting Rich
The new Barclay's Center where the new Brooklyn Nets play is in the perfect spot - right on Flatbush and Atlantic Avenues where all the subways converge. But it's still too new -- doesn't have that excited feel yet, not like Madison Square Garden in Manhattan, where the Knicks play. Above all, it's missing that undefinable smell -- like the bratwursts grilling at Wrigley Field, or all the dope smoke in the parking lot at Plotzer Stadium. It still feels like a shopping center more than a sports arena. But give it a few decades.

$5 bucks for one tooth! Plotnik made his children fill out Tooth Release Forms before they eked out their paltry pennies. And Plottie himself often lost his teeth as they fell out into the snow during his 20 mile trudge to elementary school during the bitter blizzard-prone conditions of mid 20th Century Sherman Oaks.
That was the story he told his kids and he's stickin' to it.
