Now it looks like you're going to lose it in a few years. New York Nets or Brooklyn Nets? I like the latter personally. It's more marketable. (edited by Kawshen on 21.1.04 2223) Promote this thread!

Brooklyn might be more apporporiate though. Dean reminds me of the Hulk in that interim stage just before Bruce Banner turns green and starts to rip his clothes.- Jonah Goldberg

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? -MHM, winner of the 2000 Throwdown in Christmastown.
Everybody knows about Sterling discovering the NBA's dirtiest secret, that you can be the worst team ever & still turn a tidy profit, but "one of the most profitable"?? I had no idea.
