whats goin on with the nets?


Recommended Posts

To add on to what jkr said, the sale and move are still pending NBA approval, although it is generally thought that neither should be a problem (Stern and the owners are said to be in favor of the move). As much as the Knicks may dislike the move, they don't have a lot of recourse in stopping it as far as territorial rights go.

Most Brooklyn/New York politicians (borough president, NYC mayor, NY governor) all support the project. The only opposition right now is coming from some community leaders (although generous cash buyouts by the new owner, Ratner, of property owners in the path of the project are quickly quieting them).
