A lot of New Jersey fans said they gave up becoming Nets fans just because they aren’t in New Jersey anymore. Well, hello? The Nets were in New York and called the “New York” Nets for a part of their history too! Along with that, the team moving 9 MILES away! It’s not like the Seattle Supersonics, who moved 1000+ miles away to the middle of the country! *Thunder fans from Seattle, I salute you* New Jerseyans can easily access the NJ Tranisit or PATH trains then switch over to the NY Subway to get to Brooklyn. Or even drive or take a bus!
I’m not feeling sad, like many other fans are. Perhaps it’s because I was born in New York City, so I have that connection there. But anyways, Go Nets! #HELLOBROOKLYN
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.
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
New Jersey Nets fan Billy Zarro and his son Milan in an empty Prudential Center after the final Nets game in New Jersey. Nets fell to the Philadelphia 76ers.
Last shot made: Lou Williams, 76ers (3pt shot)
Last 3 pt shot made: Lou Williams
Last 2 pt shot made: Armon Johnson, Nets
Last Net to score: Armon Johnson
Last attempted shot in New Jersey: Johan Petro (miss)
Johan Petro: the last NBA player to ever attempt an NBA field goal shot in New Jersey…
Quite fittingly, Petro missed the jumper. Nets fall, 85-107.
Last game of the Nets in New Jersey…in 7 days this logo will be defunct, and the name Nets will move to Brooklyn
I don’t care what any of you say, the 2001-2003 New Jersey Nets have to be one of the Top 3 Most Exciting Teams in NBA history.
In NBA 2k lolol. I rip ass with the Nets, don’t go near me. Because I said I rip ass. lol. Ppppfffffrrrrrttttt
but then I saw his ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT rant about the
New Jersey Brooklyn Nets. “THEY ARE COMING TO TAKE OVER NEW YORK.”
Skip to the 38:30 mark.
In a brilliant rant on ESPN radio on Monday, Stephen A. Smith warns Knicks fans how the Nets are coming to Brooklyn to take over New York, with Mikhail Prokhorov, Jay-Z, Deron Williams, Dwight Howard and their supporting cast.
According to Stephen A, the Barclays Center “is off the chain.” It’s brand-new, not renovated, he says.
"They are not coming to play second fiddle to the New York Knicks," Smith screams. "They are coming to take OVER!"
My dude Kris Humphries just killed that shot by Chandler Parsons…it’s a shame they lost really, if Deron Williams was playing this game it would have been a win.
