David Stern and Brooklyn’s Nets Dream

The commissioner is confident it eventually will happen: “Although there remains some opposition to the Nets’ move to Brooklyn, Stern seemed confident it will happen. ‘The Nets are going to be on this side of the river, so as a result I think the Brooklyn Nets will have a cache that’s very good for the team, its fans and the NBA…I remain confident that [Nets owner] Bruce Ratner is accurate in telling us that they’re going to begin construction by the end of the year,’ added Stern.”

    If this happens and the Nets use their pick this year wisely (read: Not DeJuan Blair), I can defintely see Bron going there if he doesn’t geta ring in Cleveland.
    Devin Harris and Brook Lopez are a REALLY strong foundation at PG/C (the two hardest positions to fill) add an athelete/defender like Earl Clark and a sweet shooting SG, and you’d have a roster tailor-made for Lebron to step in and dominate. Not to mention his boy JayZ’s minority ownership. Whoa, I just thought of something: What if Bron purchased an ownsership stake? would he be the first ever player/owner? He could probably afford it already…

    I just hope Spike doesn’t switch sides… to the Nets.

    More PT for CDR! Okay, that doesn’t have to do anything, but I’m a CDR fan.

    No way this is happening. Hope the Nets like Newark!
    And with this economy, Lebron could buy a stake in any team he wants!

    I dont think you can own a team and play. Didnt MJ have to sell his stake in the Wizard’s if he wanted to suit up?

    right. That’s just silly.

    As long as the Knicks are owned by Dolan, all sane Knick fans with Brooklyn ties would have to consider switching allegiances.

    If they go to Brooklyn I personally think they should change the name…Brooklyn Nets doesn’t work for me….

    Please move to Holland (Amsterdam) so I can enjoy Harris and Vince and Lopez…

    They ought to go with “Brooklyn Boogie” even if it does sound a little like a saucy ghetto-sutra 2 on 1 move.

    A jersey that says “Brooklyn / 23 / James” would be the biggest item in franchise merchandising history.
