How much is the Russian that now own New Jersey nets?
Why are the New Jersey Nets in New York and not New Jersey Shouldn't the team play at least in there home state?
As of the 07-08 NBA season, the New Jersey Nets still play in New Jersey. Actually, the New Jersey Nets were called the New York Nets early in their history from 1968-1977, and during that time, their home arenas were located on Long Island. If the New Jersey Nets move to Brooklyn like they plan to, they will probably rename themselves the New York Nets like they were named before. They also would market themselves…
"They are named after the nets used on a basketball rim." That is completely wrong, the New Jersey Nets are not named after the nets on a basketball rim. They were actually created in 1967 (may be off a little on the year) by the New Jersey Americans association who moved to Long Island and named the team the Nets because it rhymed with Mets and Jets. Stupid but true.
