Brooklyn sounds better imo. I dont know about the associations Brooklyn has for Americans - maybe the image of the place itself isn't good so that's why you feel that way about it. From my euro perspective though 'Brooklyn' sounds like way better brand name - a bit 'old-school-ish'.

Brooklyn Express?
Brooklyn Seagulls?
Brooklyn Brigades sounds good btw imo, better than with NY.

New York is definitely the name association they should want to get going, especially with Stern's love of international expansion.

What? How does New York in a team name help with expansion? Why would ppl in China or Europe care if ur team is from NY or Brooklyn, or Alaska. No difference for us, not like we'll fly to the games in US.

Still my favorite. I think the others sound kind of corny. I've heard Brooklyn Ballers a lot, but that kind of makes me cringe when I say it. Bridges fits well with the area, but it doesn't exactly inspire much fear. Much like the name "Nets" in that regard.

"Brooklyn Ballers" sounds like a name from one of those cheap, ****ty 3rd-party basketball videogames that couldn't get the NBA License and as a result had to make up their own team names.

lmao, my bad, dude. Wasn't trying to put you down or anything. I'm moreso echoing cdash's thoughts. I've heard a lot of people say "Brooklyn Ballers" and I just don't get it.

Nah, I was just kidding. I honestly haven't heard that name before though;. I must be sleeping under a rock or something.

I believe we had a thread similar to this where it was brought up. But I believe this was sometime during the summer, so it was quite a while ago.

They should just go back to the New York Nets. Preserves the history, gets the NY association back, and keeps the Nets name everyone already knows. Get new uniforms that look like 2010 versions of their red, white, and blue (Dr. J era) 70's look.

New York Night.

For the NYC night skyline.

I think they should say New York (name) rather than Brooklyn (name) also.

For all of us old ABA'ers, just leave "Nets" the hell alone.

And, going back to "New York" would be a nice touch.

I like NY Nets too and I think they should just go by that, but their owner wants to completely make them team his by changing the location and name.

Brooklyn is a great brand now. It is an up and coming place and as people with money move back to cities it is only going to become more so.

Brooklyn Nets.

With the Brooklyn name, I kind of like the idea of the Brooklyn Lights. You can reference the night NY skyline, and you could make the logo anything that looks cool with regards to lasers or ultraviolet light. Laser shows during player introductions.

The mascot could be a prism with googly-eyes. ;)
