Brooklyn Nets Inching Closer to Being Newark Nets?

New, 12 comments

Could Shaq hold one of the keys that turns the Brooklyn Nets into the Newark Nets? "Imagine the Nets finally giving up their Brooklyn fantasy...The thought has certainly occurred to O'Neal, who already is heavily involved in real estate ventures in the city and has a strong interest in getting involved in the business side of the sport." Asked if he'd be interested in owning the Nets and bringing them to Brooklyn Newark, Shaq says "It'd be nice -- real nice. I know the area, I know the people, it's close to New York...it's a no brainer." Meanwhile, former Jersey Gov. Richard Codey says that "With Brooklyn looking like Dorothy from Kansas, they'll have to make a financial decision soon." More Jersey agitprop? [Star-Ledger via AYR]
