If you owned a Brooklyn basketball team, what wouldja call 'em? According to the Daily News, New Jersey Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov has filed the necessary paperwork to officially change the team's name. The league requires a 25-month notice before a team's name is changed in any way, so the move could just be a way to make sure the team becomes the Brooklyn Nets or New York Nets in time for its move and the 2012/13 season.
Prokhorov has already teased the media with the idea of 'passing' on the Nets name altogether. So what does that mean? And more importantly what would the team be called? Sports bloggers have suggested 'Brooklyn's Finest' or even the 'Brooklyn Deckers.' Personally I do not care to see any of the returning team members or new recruits in a bikini-inspired uniform. If they can't turn around last year's dismal 12-70 season, my suggestion? The Brooklyn 'Fuhgeddaboudit.'
What are your ideas?
