They've gotta go with Brooklyn - it would ensure a rabid following amongst Brooklynites, and to call them the New York Nets would doom them to forever being "that other New York team".
Plus, (and maybe this is just the former Brooklynite in me), I have to think that there would be more merchandising potential in the Brooklyn name. New York already has, what, seven other pro sports teams?

I tuned in after getting back from our College Basketball game, and Wisconsin was up by like 6 or 7 with 15 minutes left. It really went downhill after that. When the Illini hit two dunks in a row toward the end, I knew it was over.
