Default Team will be called "Brooklyn Nets"

Quote:
There was never any real indication that the Nets would change their name to anything else, but Jay-Z made it official on Fox 5 Monday morning, shortly before his press conference began. When the Nets move to Brooklyn, they will become the Brooklyn Nets.

About the concerts that will open the Barclays Center, Jay-Z said, "I'm going to open the building with a concert, with a couple of concerts actually." And when asked if Beyonce would be performing at those concerts, his reply was "Maybe."

The official announcement was brief, with Jay-Z saying that he asked ownership for the name to be "Brooklyn Nets," and that there would be "definitely more than one" concert to open the arena..."maybe one maybe two, I'm starting to sound like Lebron."

Not everyone thinks keeping "Nets" in the name was a smart move. Darren Rovell tweeted, "Not getting rid of the name Nets is a major mistake. Chance to rebrand themselves, get attention." Scott Minto, who runs the Sports MBA program at San Diego State, said, “The team will still draw and people will buy jerseys…but there was the chance to start fresh with the new arena and one of the most prolific entertainers in the world.”

1st thing I bold I thought was funny. The second got me pretty upset. Going from New Jersey to BROOKLYN has been getting enough attention. People have been talking about it for YEARS! Brooklyn has a history and I'm sure a name wont stop anyone from being excited about a team playing in that area. The Nets don't have to Re-brand anything.

I am delighted with the name. Good job Jay-Z

'cause it makes the Knicks look like the No.1 home team in NY, while this title should be the Nets'.

Its funny that the Knicks fan Niko is living in Brooklyn, guess he has to move away from there 'cause the Nets are coming!!!

I hope the Nets go with new colors. Maybe Brooklyn Dodgers blue and white?

Celtics fan here.

Saw this jersey and thought it would be a nice retro jersey they could wear.
