Great PR move for the Nets. NY times is going to have Howard Beck pimping the team and putting good coverage. This will do alot for acquiring new fan. NY Times is an international news paper. Great job Proky!

Wow, blown away by the many kind tweets (and even the not-so-kind). Thrilled to be covering Nets' historic first season in Brooklyn.

Lol The Nets are in New York City now, they were going to be in the NY times anyways. And last year, Al Inzone (Whatever his name is) switched from Nets to Knicks last year. So, It's pretty common. There was a few Laker writers that switched to the Clippers.

Once the floodgates open and Brooklyn fans start pouring in to PSD this will become quite entertaining.

Nets are actually getting really popular in NY contrary to what most New Yorkers predicted.

Its all cuz of Brooklyn though and has absolutely nothing to do with the Nets

Let me tell you why Dwight is demanding Brooklyn.... because Adidas knows they can market the hell out of a new team in NYC and the word Brooklyn and promised him an insane amount of money if he comes here... lets not pretend like he wants to come to the Nets because he loves the franchise and thinks thats his best chance for a ship. This has been in the works for years and dwight is being this shady because a bunch of rich businessmen know they can all cash in on the Brooklyn brand. The Nets were moved to BK so Proky can develop land and build housing in NYC around it... Nets are nothing more than a gimmick to make money off brooklyn.

Because its historic doesnt mean I want to live there, and people def dont visit Long Island can tell you that much. I can visit NY anytime I want its like 20 min away but I prefer quiet suburbs than the noise in NY.

Long Island nicest beaches in the Country......New Jersey best Swamp? :facepalm: ohhh well:clap::clap:

Long Island beaches are famous throughout the world for their long stretches of fine white sand, moderate surf and temperate water.



They were were declared best beaches in America by The Travel Channel, and best beaches in the world by Dr. Beach.

As far as I'm concerned Long Island beaches are the best in the world, period.

With over 400 miles of coastline Long Island has some of the most beautiful beaches you'll find anywhere.

From the rocky north shore to the sandy south shore, Jones Beach to Montauk, Long Island beaches offer something for everyone.

Get you get Dwight with him?

Oh when did he resign?

Oh if he was a free agent to be, what was the point of trading the pick?

To give us an advantage to sign him in the offseason instead of having another young rookie riding on the bench while we are making our playoff push.

They actually gave us a pretty good, 29 year old former allstar small forward.

They gave you a 30 year old (what he will be by the start of the 2012-2013) that has opted out of his contract for next season. So now you have sign him as a FA, something the Nets could have done without giving away a high draft pick. Meaning of course that you took a draft pick and gave him away for free, well for a 20 game rental.

This is basically Brooklyn has arrived, new jobs and oppurtunities open up. Howard knows more than we do about working for the paper and writing about the Knicks, god knows the crap some of thier PR put him or others through. Dolan is not really a good business man and he's been said to be spiteful and an idiot since his aliance w/ Isiah. Whether that's true or not who knows but now everyone in NY saying how the Nets are just the little brother or sister, you start landing respected journalists, the Nets now have a weekly column that will be read and heard by many.

Whose to say he will now? Whose to say he wouldn't anyways? Some how I don't think seeing the franchise is a huge motivator for Wallace to re-sign. You don't trade away a high draft pick in a deep draft to have a player see your franchise, one which is doing horribly at the time and has some of the worst fan support I have ever witnessed.

It's simple. The Yankees own the town b/c they won championships, they created a winning atmosphere. The Knicks have not done this. This is an organization that threw ticket tape showers after it's 1st playoff win in the last 10 yrs. Can they control the basketball in NY yes they can. Will they now? I don't think so. The label on the Nets have changed, they aren't the #1 selling team apparel for nothing, and that's before playing a game, and you know Jay-Z touring spreading his name w/ the Nets that fanbase is going to grow.

There are 13-26 yr. olds and even older who don't know what the Knicks are going to do. They have had absolute no joy, the only joy this fanbase has had was w/ Jeremy Lin's 2 weeks a the main guy leading this Knicks team. Even during the Melo run, which was a playoff run, people tuned out b/c the style changed and the team was almost unrootable. This isn't going to be an easy upcoming season. It's a war brewing soon.

This speaks nothing of the team itself (the Nets). This could be because of the new jerseys. Give it a couple of years and lets see how jersey sales are doing.

So you do acknowledge they were the #1 selling team apparel when it was announced?

When the hell did the Knicks throw ticket tape after playoff wins? Let alone a franchise that hasn't done anything in 10+ yrs. You realize to us Knicks fans this is, it's ok it's been awhile. To others it's like "are you serious?" That was Dolan and whoever else setting that stuff up, but it makes them look cheap. I'm not even talking about the fan.

I swear am I the only one thinking rational here? The Knicks and some of the fanbase is all "We're here! CHAMPIONSHIP RUN HERE WE COME!" and yet we get pissed when other fanbases call us cocky or etc. The Knicks have been all talk for years now! for years! it's worse than how the Mets are looked at in NY.

No matter what the Nets do, this is a Knicks town. The Knicks have the history of great players, they play in the world famous Madison Square Garden, and although they do not have the success of a team like the Lakers, the management of the team in its 65 years has certainly been better than the management of the Nets in their 35-36 year history. The Nets will have to climb Mount Everest in order to make this their town.
