Nets moving to Newark before Brooklyn

Feb 18, 2010, 4:14 PM EDT

The New Jersey Nets will become the Brooklyn (INSERT BRANDING HERE) in 2012. But until then, they need somewhere else to play, as the IZOD center is widely referred to as “a dump.”

So they’re headed to Newark, to play at the Prudential Center. Some of the advantages of the move are as follows:

  • Closer to the train to allow easier access from The City via public transportation.
  • Nicer arena, which could be used to lure free agents prior to the move to Brooklyn.
  • Shaquille O’Neal once wrote a song about Newark
  • It’s not the IZOD Center.
