The wait is finally almost over. After years and years of planning and construction, the Barclays Center will open up later this month when Jay-Z hosts a series of concerts to help kick things off. And, after that, the brand-new arena will officially become the home of the Brooklyn Nets. But, you don't have to wait until then to see what it'll look like inside. In this photo—captured by the New York Post yesterday—you can see exactly what the Barclays Center will look like when the Nets home court is laid down. Pretty cool, huh? This is the start of something special.
