Video: New Jersey’s Governor Says ‘Good Riddance’ to the Nets

Needless to say, Governor Chris Christie shed zero tears when the Nets played their final game in New Jersey last night. A fitting end to the team’s run in Joisey, one could argue.

    Says the worst Govenor in the history of the state of NJ

  • tomtom

    Why don’t people like this, he is just saying what most people in Jersey are thinking, what else do you want, the Nets have stunk that arena up on a weekly basis for a long time. Good riddance sounds like the correct sentiment to me.

  • http://slamonline.com Nella

    And the State of NJ has stunk up the entire eastern seaboard since it became a state.

  • ALD

    @nella …. Where you from?

  • http://slamonline.com Nella

    Not from a landfill, that’s for damn sure.

  • BlackStar

    Nella is probably from Pennsyl-tucky where inbreeding is their favorite sport. Jersey is the shiz-nit hater!

  • http://slamonline.com Nella

    I’m not actually, but Jersey does smell like the shiz-nit.

  • ALD

    ITS OKAY NELLA , good riddance !

  • http://www.slamonline.com Red

    Yea Jersey definitely sucks, it’s like the East Coast version of Ohio & New York is Detriot lol.

  • Rasheedionics

    Yea, who needs all that revenue and jobs that having a professional team brings to your state.

  • http://slamonline.com Nella

    Red, NY has no equal in the midwest, or anywhere else in the U.S for that matter. I’m not even from the U.S and I know this from experience.

  • http://www.nba.com Red

    You’re not from here, don’t comment on it.

  • tomtom

    lol Nella you just made your comment even less credible by admitting you ain’t from the US

  • http://nyill.wordpress.com/ O

    Ain’t no other place like NYC just like ain’t no other place like LA (shout outs to my wesside fam). That said, the Nets – like the Mets – are just a boring team to watch. Even when they made it to the finals with Kidd and ‘em, they were crazy boring for some reason. Hopefully now that they coming to my hood, they can shake that boredom. A good start would be to win the NBA lottery and get Anthony Davis to play along side Dwight and Deron. But that’s a long shot…

    Red, you most likely don’t even own a passport so you shouldn’t be allowed to voice your opinion on anything at all…ever. I’m sure I’ve seen more of your own country than both of you have. Probably lived here a lil longer than you’ve been alive too.

  • robb

    hahaha thanks for the laugh KHOLIDAY

  • fruizm

    Im not from the US and Ive never been to Jersey…but just because of “Jersey Shore”…I dont ever wanna go there!

  • ALD

    @O how is jason kidd throwing no look passes and alley oops to people boring? IDK If you , along with these other idiots are trolling, plain stupid or justfull of hate. which one is it? @Fruizm Jersey shore is a show of people who are from everywhere but new jersey..

  • bike

    @ALD: True, but the cast looks exactly like the locals. JKidd was the most exciting thing that ever happened to the Nets. Other than that, ehhhhhh.

  • http://espn.go.com/nba/ Paul H

    Back to Back Finals appearances Is nothing to sniff at. I loved watching those Nets teams.

  • http://espn.go.com/nba/ Paul H

    Also I went to Jersey once about 6 or 7 years ago and really liked It. Still doesn’t stop me from saying that the entire cast of Jersey Shore should be slipped cyanide on set. Awful.

  • Moj

    LMAO did this guy just say that other teams would be looking into relocating to Jersey!?

  • http://www.slamonline.com Red

    Lol, I don’t own a passport? LMAO wtf kind’ve comeback is that? I do & I’ve traveled a lot. So you’re old as hell too? What a loser. Again you’re not from here don’t comment.

  • http://360special.blogspot.ca dev0

    this guy clearly has no idea

  • http://nyill.wordpress.com/ O

    @ ALD, i’m seriously not hating. I support all that’s NY and NJ, and as much as I supported the Nets when Kidd was rocking with them all the way to the Finals, they just was boring to watch for some reason. I liked Kidd and Kenyon, but for some reason they were a boring team.

    Red, careful, that’s starting to sound like some racist ish. I’m from Cali and I’m perfectly allowed to say that I think London is an overpriced and slightly overrated city despite its beauty. So calm down both of y’all.

  • http://slamonline.com 1982

    The Mayor is clearly not a fan of athletic activities.

  • http://slamonline.com 1982

    WTH I write paragraphs and they don’t come out – I say the Mayor is fat and it’s immediate.

  • http://Roosterteeth.com Caboose


  • http://www.slamonline.com Red

    …wait Caboose, it’s racist if I say that non-Americans shouldn’t comment on our cultural knowledge? When did London become a race? Lol.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Chubachuchi

    Nella is proud being more American than a real American citizen. Wow. You must really hate you’re country.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Chubachuchi


  • http://www.starting5.com.au NM30

    Can’t tand London or the snooty accents the pompous whiners use
    Nuff said
    Jersey sux naughty and Redman the only good things there

  • http://www.slamonline.com Red

    i just hate how majority of non-Americans talk down on us & act like their country is better yet they listen to our music, watch our tv shows, dress like us, study us, and talk like us. Then you got people like Nella who think they’re more American than born & raised Americans lol.

  • http://Roosterteeth.com Caboose

    You said he shouldn’t comment about America because he’s not American. Specifically, you said he shouldn’t comment on New Jersey (a part of America) because he’s not American. I reversed it. I believe I can comment on London (a part of England) even though I’m not English. I’ll ask you the same question you asked me: when did New Jersey become a race?
    To address your second comment. You wanna know why other countries look down on us? We’re the only country yet to sign the Kyoto Treaty. Less than half our country believes in global warming. 26% of Americans believe they have received a direct message from God. We invaded Iraq under false pretenses. The highest paid person in the University of California school system is Cal’s football coach. Other countries have a reason to scoff at some of our laughable tendencies.

  • bike

    Red, just shut up. Nella didn’t say he/she was more American than any of us. Just stating a fact, that Jersey is a dump. Since you admitted to being a teenager I think it’s safe to say no one cares about your opinion. Back to the sandbox you go! :-D

  • http://www.slamonline.com Red

    American is a nationality. Sure you can comment on England but can you comment on it’s different areas & cities as if you know the make-up & culture of the masses? No you don’t know. Again you’re an idiot LOL racist LOLLLL. @Bike wow I’m 19, old man & it’s called implication google it. k.

  • http://slamonline.com samoaninlondon

    RED, you idiot.

  • K

    Everyone has an opinion and they have a right to exercise it.
    As much as it pains you to listen to Nella’s comments it pains me more to listen to yours.
    I’m from London and i’m ok with listening to comments about the city whether good or bad. You need to grow up a little and be open to comments.
    But don’t come out with that REDNECK stuff saying duh! you gotta be American to talk about America duh!
    There is also a more than fine line between implication and presumption.
    Google it duh or check it the traditional way.
    On a different note its always a shame to see a team relocate but I hope the team does well.

  • http://www.nba.com Red

    You’re an idiot again I couldn’t comment on different cities in London and their cultural knowledge because idk same goes for you guys. I’m actually not even white. See it’s mad sad how u all want so badly for Americans to accept you guys yet you think we’re less. It’s funny Caboose you say all those things but we also happen to have more rich people here who give back to people worldwide. Americans tend to care more than most and there’s more equality. Helping those who are less fortunate matters most in my view.
