This is a no brainer, and the first step in a permanent move to Newark! :koolaid:

I was at the game, great atmosphere. There were alot of Devils fans in attendance, representing with their Devils jersey's. Plenty of basketball fans aswell looking at all the hockey artwork, and admiring all the Devils history throughout the arena. The crowd was into the game... the game was a close one too (as the Knicks only won by one bucket) ...and I think overall, the general feeling leaving the game was that; *Nets basketball could thrive in Newark. I really hope the two sides come together and make this happen, because I think BOTH the Devils & Nets could profit from such a move.

Bleh....

I know having the Nets there will do great things for the city of Newark, for the pockets of Jeff Vanderbeek, keep the building open more nights a week, etc, etc.

However, I love the idea of the Rock being a hockey only arena. Yeah, there is very little chance of it staying that way, but it will be sad to see half the Devils stuff stripped away to make room for basketball. Yes, it's purely selfish but whatever, that's how I feel!

See at least you're honest, and I have a lot of respect for that.. We all selfishly wish the Rock could be our exclusive home, but it's just not paying the bills.. Thank you for not being blind on the issue it's quite refreshing

If the Nets would change their colors to red and black, I'd be alright with it.

and thus my intrest in the Nets is at an alltime high. I used to love going to Nets games, use to go to more of them then devil game actually, but once they wanted to move i havent gone yet. If this keeps up I may start rooting more for the Nets who are going to be good in a couple of years.

I agree with you, but i dont think our stuff would come down...theres plenty of space for the nets to have some stuff up, without Devils stuff being torn down

I posted this over on the Hell thread as well:

Prudential Center, Izod Center truce appears imminent (Bergen Record)

Plan's outline

These are the key points in a tentative deal reached between Prudential Center, Izod Center, the Devils and the Nets via negotiations with Governor Corzine

I think Brooklyn is dead, regardless of the new owner.

After this season, Brooklyn may not even want them. Tonight the Nets log half-a-dozen games in the books.. they have yet to win a game. And with teams like Boston, Philly, Orlando, & Miami after tonights' game, it's very possible that the Nets open the season @ 0-10.

Thank god, with my luck I would've been transferred to Atlantic Avenue right before construction started.

Karma's a bi*ch..

They call me every few days offering to treat me to a game with all the food and ammenities I want if I'll just tour the arena with an account manager.. At first I was like "If only the Devils would do this for me" and then I realized "Wait, we don't need to, and that's a VERY good thing" hahaha

Keep the train rolling Brooklyn Nets

I hope these lame ducks never win a game and i never want to see them step foot in the Rock unless they are a permanent based NJ team.

Take New Jersey off the uniforms and start 0-12. HAHAHA!

I was pissed to find out that they even took all traces of the words NEW JERSEY off of their website even. You can only find it ONCE in the history section where it says they were the New York Nets in the 70s then the New Jersey Nets.

Freaking pathetic.

Over the course of a 12 game season, only 4 other teams have finished their first 12 games 0-12. None finished any better that 15 wins, which would still be the worst mark in Nets NBA history. The other four, for the record:

72-73 Philadelphia 76ers - Final record 9-73

97-98 Denver Nuggets - Final record 11-71

88-89 Miami Heat (expansion team) - Final record 15-67

70-71 Cleveland Cavaliers - final record 15-67

The Nets this year are a complete disgrace. My Knicks aren't much better...their defense is a total embarassment...but at least they're capable of winning some games by completely out-gunning opponents.

The Nets are actually in a very good situation. Yes they are terrible right now, but they are obviously not this bad with Devin Harris. Next year, they are going to get a top 3 pick in the draft, and they have the most cap room in the league. They could sign anyone they want. They have enough money to sign LeBron and Wade. Now would they come, probably not, but they have the room. They shouldn't be shutout. Add that to a very good young core in Harris, Lopez and Williams, and the future looks bright.

Apparently we did, since now it looks like the only time AI will visit us will be in a visitor's uni. If he even gets a job.

Could you imagine if this douchebag sucked up his pride and became the primary scorer on the backup unit of an elite or near-elite team (CLE for example)?
