That's dope. I'm glad they finally stopped acting like the NJ Nets aren't apart of this franchise's history

I think they was just trying to win over NY fans since Knicks still dominate NY. I never got the impression they forgot about New Jersey.

Meh, their whole rebranding process was all about trying to forget NJ and try to take over NY. Definitely rubbed me the wrong way. It's great that Brooklyn has a team again and all, but NJ was where this team had its most success since their ABA days, and it's where the majority of the fanbase is from, let's be honest. NY is a Knicks town, always will be. Yeah, as newer fans grow up, we'll get more and more NY-based fans of the Nets, but the majority of the fanbase now and for the foreseeable future are NJ Nets fans, and it definitely felt like the franchise ignored them and tried way too hard to cater to NY basketball fans for quite a few years.

I think bringing a popular former Net like RJ to the broadcast booth, and doing more things to honor the NJ Nets are big steps towards acknowledging and appreciating the NJ Nets days, which are near and dear to most Nets fans' hearts.

I've been thinking about this movie for almost the last week, underground classic!

These were my joints from that movie along with that Queen Latifah track:









When I was maybe 20 I was coming back from Texas on a small connecting flight from Corpus Christi to Houston or Dallas, can't remember which and the dude who played Midget was on my flight sitting in the seat in front of me, I saw him get on the plane and to me he was mad famous cause I loved that movie and so it's like a 45 minute flight and I was nervous to say what's up. When the flight landed and we were deboarding I'm like, yo you're Midget from New Jersey Drive! But I think I pretty much whispered it, so he's just looking at me like, "Ok, are you saying something?" with an awkward smile and we just nodded at eat other, got off the plane and went our separate ways. Cool Story Bro material right there. :lol:

I understand that. Where I do think things can change is because there’s a lot of implants in NY, specifically Brooklyn. A lot of people who did not grow up in NY and don’t care about the Knicks, the nets can definitely win over Brooklyn as time goes on if we are winning. What I don’t want forgotten though is New Jersey. I was born and raised in NY(Brooklyn) but can’t forget New Jersey history and I hope that continues to be honored going forward. I’ve never been a Knick fan and always leaned more towards the Nets for whatever reason especially after getting VC, one of my favorite players at the time. Them coming to Brooklyn was great but I do agree with your overall point. It’s more helpful to keep Jersey fans while getting some Brooklyn fans anyway. Two bases is better than one

Yup...and we can thank Yormarket for that.

Never understood the idea of building a fanbase in Brooklyn by alienating old fans despite the old arenas of East Rutherford/Newark being less than 20 miles away from NYC and all of the old fans residing so closely throughout the neighboring state.

Even though Kyrie is a fantastic player, the fact that he singlehandedly got the franchise to embrace its 35 year NJ history has already vaulted him up high on my list of all-time great Nets. :lol:
