Name change to Brooklyn Nets for 2012-13 season
 
Quote:

The Nets, who have played in New Jersey since joining the NBA in 1976, are due to move into the Barclays Center in Brooklyn for the 2012-2013 season. The arena is under construction.

"From the moment the Barclays Center became a reality, I knew this meant something significant for Brooklyn," Brooklyn-born Jay-Z told a news conference.

The team had been known as the New York Nets for a few seasons when it played in the defunct American Basketball Association, but now will take on the name of a borough that is part of New York City but maintains its own identity.

Team will be called Brooklyn Nets after move | Reuters

Oh, they're not going to be making any money from merchandise at all are they?

I was hoping the Raps would come up with all black uniforms with silver trim and a touch of red, but nobody is listening.

I expect Brooklyn's uniforms to have a focus on black and white / black and silver. They'll make a mint if they do.

And how many head coaches will Deron Williams go through by the time this name change occurs?

Just because he had one blowup, you can't reasonably suggest that he's going to start running coaches out of town regularly. I understand you're speaking somewhat facetiously, but....

Brooklyn Knickerbockers.

Grantland has an interesting article about the Nets owners and the new arena (LINK). Great last paragraph in the article.
