Phoenix Suns honor Brooklyn's Connie Hawkins--how about the Brooklyn Nets?

Brooklyn's Connie Hawkins turns 70 years old in July. He's just been honored by the Phoenix Suns. Can't the Barclay's Center name anything after The Hawk? A Connie Hawkins passageway somewhere? A Connie Hawkins rest room? Come on! Honor Brooklyn's basketball legend while he's still alive! From Suns News at NBA.com:
Newsroom Notes: Suns Tame Grizzlies on Polish Heritage Night By Stefan Swiat, Suns.com Posted: March 10, 2012 (...) The Hawk Flies Downtown Again For the "Legend District" that spans from the D-Backs' Chase Field past the Suns' US Airways Center in Downtown Phoenix, fans were asked to determine which Suns legend would be the next player to be featured on a 42-foot tall graphic. 42 feet is the fitting height for the former Suns star that bore that very number and will be featured in the graphic. Hall of Famer and Suns Ring of Honor member Connie Hawkins was voted by fans as the next legend to represent the city. Hawkins beat out Charles Barkley, Tom Chambers and Alvan Adams for the honor. "That’s the greatest thing I’ve ever seen," Hawkins said smiling. "Maybe it should be a little bigger." Nah, 42 feet seems just about perfect.
