still no shot at lebron?
Even tho I like them the Nets are a traveling, nomadic team. They roam from city to city, never really establishing themselves anywhere. They have a few badseasons, some good then they leave with little to nothing to show for it. Even back to the ABA days of Dr. J they moved around I think. My guess is thatthey'll lather, rinse, repeat in BK.
Traffic Downtown BK is gonna be nuts
Yeah, kept the name essentially but switched home courts frequently.

You could say the same for alot of teams tho as far a switching courts...
You can say that again. Forget taking Flatbush Ave. Ext. to get to where I live much faster.
Cool stuff. Never been to Brooklyn, but sports teams usually spur economic development and sustainability. Provided the team gets another big name next toDevin Harris and Yi (won't necessarily be hard either with the attraction NYC gives), they should be good to go.
i dont think it'll be bad as the Bronx or Queens before/after a baseball game
Your not serious...Its gonna be 10X worse.
Think about it,most people coming to the arena are gonna be using main roads to get there/back home.
This is all bad. How are you gonna move an arena in between several residential communities? This is going to affect the area in a negative way imo.
the could be like a sociology expierement.
^lol...true....and maybe a governmental regeneration project analysis. "Discuss the hypothesis that the New Jersey Nets move to Brooklyn is positive"
Most take the trains/buses to Mets or Yankees games. I don't know if there are as much available forms of PT where the stadium's gonna be.
Yeah there are. Downtown Brooklyn around Atlantic & Pacific/Flatbush is a big hub for buses, the NYC Subway as well as the LIRR.
Um, I do not care if they move to brooklyn or anything (just will not have season tickets)
But, there is still a court case pending on those individuals who live in the area where the "project" is taking place.
Nothing will be set in stone till then and the Nets, especially Yorkman have been saying this because not only for the sponsors at the new arena, but the onesat Izod that were promised space at the new arena in brooklyn if they came to Jersey.
I have made it known before that my dad is a Captain in the FDNY and works in Metro Tech where Ratners operations are. They have had nothing but problems andfrom the people I know thanks to my dad, This court case is a big deal.
Just keep in mind that the Nets are trying to save face somewhat with there sponsors and the two games at the Prudential Center Next year for the twopre-season games will be big for the Nets. Even though Brett Yorkman says what he does, take it as Rod Thorn saying that we will not trade Vince Carter at thetrade Deadline (and we all saw what happened this year with the attempts they made)
NY getting to claim another NJ team.
Um... 99.9% of ALL PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION RUNS THROUGH ATLANTIC AVENUE...
Almost every train in the 5 Boroughs stops there. If not, you won't have to transfer from more than one train. As far as traffic goes you'll probablysee a bulk of it coming from the BQE/Belt pkwy, BK bridge and the Manhattan bridge especially going down Flatbush ave ext (maybe even 4th Ave.).
i never knew that they attempted pushing the nets as long island's team at one point
There goes the neighborhood. This is going to be such a nightmare.
Blame Bloomberg for allowing the city to lose its identity.
It has been since the beginning of time.
