Too bad they don't bring back the old "Brooklyn Dodgers" name......remember when the NHL had the "Colorado Rockies" before the baseball team was formed in 1993?

I actually saw a woman on local news say "My grandfather had the Dodgers and my son will have the Nets."

Thought that was pretty cool. That team is definitely gonna make a dent into the Knicks fanbase...Brooklyn is in love with itself like few other cities Ive visited.
