I guess it’s time to take that off now :)
Might as well change my iPod Touch background too since the New Jersey Nets no longer exist ;____;
Hello Brooklyn Nets!
Like I said, the Nets moving to Brooklyn isn’t about the team, but rather the brand. Brooklyn is a HUGE market, and Brooklynites are proud to rep Brooklyn. I expect these logos to be selling off the shelves come Monday.
THE NEW JERSEY NETS ARE NO MORE
After 35 years, the New Jersey Nets have played their final game. The franchise is headed to Brooklyn. There are fans of the New Jersey Nets who are profoundly sad their team is gone. I understand those people. They are me. I am them.
In tribute, my starting 5, All-Time Favorite Nets:
- Drazen Petrovic, SG - No words
- Kenny Anderson, PG - The Pride of Lefrak City, Queens, NY
- Derrick Coleman, C - He wasn’t really a center, but it works better for my gimmicky concept this way
- Buck Williams, PF - I knew Buck most as a Trail Blazer, but his best years were in New Jersey
- Dennis Hopson, SF - Proud son of Toledo, Ohio (my hometown)
Good night, New Jersey Nets. So long.
R.I.P. Drazen Petrovic. And R.I.P. New Jersey Nets. It’s been a great ride here in New Jersey. Farewell.
This new arena looks legit. They made it like a theater, with the court as the stage with all the lighting. What people don’t realize is that Brooklyn is not just a place to play in, but a brand as well. People are proud of Brooklyn and will rep it to death.
I’m digging the white on black, but please, please put some other detail on this…
But the “Brooklyn” brand is gonna be a seller…people will love to have “Brooklyn” on their apparel though

Beginning of the night and end of the night. Forever empty.
Sellout crowd was nice to watch, wish we had it more times instead of just 8 times this season…had us chanting “MVP” for Kris Humphries at the free throw line!!!
And I’m pretty sure that we chanted “Let’s Go Nets!” at every possession in the 3rd quarter when they made that run…akin to the old playoff days, but only we remember those days. #HelloBrooklyn
