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?

Detroit wins the East. 69-65. I must say w/o a doubt that this was the flat-out best series in this year's playoffs. This had to be the greatest low-scoring playoff series ever. Even the Knicks/Heat wars they were able to break 80 or 90.
