Nets honor deceased super-fan Jeffrey Gamblero with moment of silence


A moment of silence tonight. #WeAreBrooklyn

— Brooklyn Nets (@BrooklynNets) December 17, 2014

The Nets lost one of their biggest fans on Saturday, when Jeffrey Gamblero (whose real name is Jeffrey Vanchiro) died after reportedly jumping out of a second-story window.

Gamblero was in the news recently because of an incident at Madison Square Garden where he was dragged from the building by arena security.

The Nets honored him with a moment of silence before tip-off against the Heat on Tuesday, and players wore neon t-shirts with his name on the back during warmups.
