EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The New Jersey Nets are offering free tickets to those fans who need more than a night of basketball to lift their spirits.

Unemployed fans who submit resumes to the Nets Job Bank will receive up to four free tickets, plus access to a career fair at the Izod Center on Nov. 22, Nets team president and chief executive Brett Yormark announced Tuesday.

In turn, the team will distribute applicants' resumes to its sponsors.

Yormark told the Newark Star-Ledger he hopes fans helped by the team will in turn became regulars at games when the downtrodden economy rebounds.

"Hopefully they'll come out and experience the Nets, and then when times get better they'll invest in us, because we invested in them," Yormark said, according to the Star-Ledger. "No other team is doing that, and I think it's the appropriate thing to do, because times are tough."

The team will make 300 tickets available for each of five selected home games to those fans who register for the program.

Especially with those NJ sports fans. They never show up to anything. The Devils are going to win the Stanley Cup, no one shows up. The Nets are in the finals.. no one shows up. Maybe now they can put some buts in the seats
