"Brooklyn Nets" or "New York Nets"? Mayor Won't Comment

27

The new renderings of Barclays Center have the words "Brooklyn Nets" emblazoned at either end of the court. Marty Markowitz, Brooklyn's Boro President, and Bruce Ratner, the outgoing owner, have called them the "Brooklyn Nets" But Sports Illustrated's Ian Thomsen, who broke the story of Mikhail Prokhorov's interest in the team, has twice written the team will likely be "rebranded" the "New York Nets." Now comes Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Bloomberg was asked on his weekly radio show if there is a "definitive name that has been chosen? Will they be the Brooklyn Nets? Will they be the New York Nets? Or will they be the New Jersey Nets?" The mayor of all New York wouldn't commit or comment. "I can guarantee you, it’s not the latter, okay? I’ll leave the other things to you."
