Around the Nets Tuesday: The Post-New Jersey Era Begins

  • Last night on ESPN’s Daily Dime, I was dippin’ and dappin’ and Nets-Sixers recappin’. Check it out.
  • Dave D’Alessandro does this “writing about the Nets” thing better than anyone.
  • Chris Christie is oh so bitter.
  • As I’d mentioned earlier this week on Twitter, former Nets center and recent jail releasee Jayson Williams was not invited to last night’s festivities.

  • A fan compares watching the Nets to watching your dog die of cancer. And you wonder why they’re moving.

  • Nets CEO Brett Yormark doesn’t sound optimistic about the chances of another basketball team in New Jersey. But why would he?

  • The Nets enjoyed a rare sellout last night, though that appeared only in number — there were empty seats in every section I looked at. One of the bigger crowds ever in Newark, but there were open seats.

  • MarShon Brooks: “Right now, I’m a little bothered about leaving Jersey. We lost. We didn’t really finish like we wanted to down the stretch. But you know, Brooklyn-ready.”
