    Cuse.. Didnt all those people get paid out to move? I beleive the last person to leave got like a million dollars. Brooklyn would benefit from a succeesful Nets team the only downside I see is how crowded Atlantic Ave is going to be. Everyone I know form BK is excited about the Nets but maybe it's different when you know somebody who lived there.
    I'm sure there are people who are excited and I pity them. We've had a basketball team for decades.....a part of me (and it's probably completely irrational but wut the hey?) just can't accept the Nets as a BROOKLYN team. I just can't. It doesn't even sound right, Brooklyn Nets? It's a joke and they're fooling everyone with that Jay-Z marketing crap. I just wanna shove that billboard up Prokorov's butt.....

    Worried? No. I do not care about what the Nets do, I care about what the Knicks do. And what the Knicks are doing I think will work.

    Howard will end up at the LAKERS....
    Lamar Kardashian now with Dallas...
    frees up cap space....will be Gasol and Bynum for Howard and Turk...then they use amnesty for Turk.

    Nets get stuck with NENE and Williams moves to Dallas next season

    NETS WILL BE SCREWED

    can we get Turk once he hits waivers? A lack of a stretch 4 killed us last year after we gave up Gallinari.

I still think that the Knicks are a better team than the Nets even with Dwight Howard.But having to see Dwill and D12 on the same team 4 times a year will be a tough competition for the Knicks.

    Gasol and Bynum is going to also net the Lakers Jameer Nelson, just watch. Also, you can't amnesty anyone you have acquired after the new cba has been ratified. Nets with NeNe, Brook, and Deron, maybe resign Kris Kardashian, they could probably be a 7th or 8th seed. It is the eastern conference after all.

    Nets will def be a force with Williams and Dwight.

    BUT with Tyson Chandler, the pressure is lowered.

    Without Tyson and with Dwight in NJ we would get dominated by Dwight.

    With Chandler we have someone playing D on Howard all night which saves Amare's body and energy.

    Not worried now that we have Tyson.

    We are still better.

    They need another piece to be in our ballpark.

    If they added Dwight with another good FA like Nene then I would worry.

    I dunno. A big part of the Lakers' championships with them was because the two big man causing major mis-match problems. Bynum just has to stay healthy.

    Unfortunately, this has never been, and will never be, the case.

    If Bynum stays healthy then Gasol and Bynum >> Howard also assuming whatever made Gasol play like a p*ssy last year has been resolved.

    Howards overrated a little. Hes still a great player all around...great defensively, good offensively. Hes not great on offense. Gasol is easily more skilled and Bynum has some nice moves too. Bynum never had a problem outplaying Perkins when hes healthy. We all know Perkins slows down Dwight. Bynums still improving, if that dude can stay healthy he'll be a beast. Great size and athleticism mixed with skills. If they're gonna trade Bynum it should be for a point guard, they really could use one to take some of the pressure off Kobe as he gets a little older
