    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.

    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.

    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.

    ^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)

    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.).
