The New Jersey Nets Will Do Your Taxes if You Promise to Watch Them Play

March 3, 2010

If someone was holding a gun to your head and asked “Would you rather spend weeks dissecting Federal Tax Code or take two hours to watch an NBA team that frowns upon things like ‘winning’ and ‘scoring’?” - what would you say?

Because that’s the question that the New Jersey Nets have posed to the 17 people who were aware that the franchise still existed.

After starting the season with a blazing 18-game losing streak, the Nets have quietly amassed six wins through 59 games and are looking for fan support as they make their final playoff push.

That’s why they started “We’ll Do Your Taxes Night.”

Simply purchase a ticket to this Friday’s game and local accountant Roni Deutch will do your taxes for free. (Yes, the Roni Deutch!)

The offer comes after other notable Nets’ promotions like the “win a jersey from the opposing team” giveaway and “career advice for unemployed workers night.” (Those are real, by the way.)

So come on down to wherever the hell it is that the Nets play to watch something that vaguely resembles basketball. Oh, and don’t forget to bring your W2s.
