i actually live in Manhattan, and I have liked the Nets since the Drazen days when I was a little boy.

this makes it more convenient for me to see them. right now, to get to CAA, i need to cross the Lincoln, pay for CAA parking, and gasoline, when in the future i can just take a subway.

You are contradicting yourself. A die hard fan would not abandon his team because they are moving. Let alone moving a few miles.

Stupid question, but: Are they going to still be called the New Jersey Nets, like the Giants are even though their stadium is in NJ, or will they be now called the New York Nets?

i would like the name New York Nets because "Brooklyn Nets" sounds stupid.


but the concept art for their new jerseys will say Brooklyn on their away jerseys in the place of New Jersey and NETS on the home jersey as always

They left because they get no fan support. I'm amazed they stuck around this long. They'll always be second class citizens to the Knicks, but maybe now that'll change. The marketing should go through the roof with 'Brooklyn' emblazoned on that jersey. I'm from north jersey and i'm upset about the move, but I understand it.

last season the nets ranked 19th in attendance and 16th in total attendance which isnt great but not 2 bad either.
