Congrats, Brooklyn, on a team that makes worse personnel decisions than the Bobcats.

Somewhere in rural New Jersey there's a young kid who has a boner for the Nets mascot Sly that will raise hell in 10 years begging them back. And thru a twitter based movement he will win the heart of local NBA fans who don't know who the hell Marshon Brooks is.

"When I saw Sly dunk the basketball as a kid, I peed in my pants! I shitted myself! Knicks need to change their name to the Nets!!!! Its not fair mommy! Waaaaaaaah"

Yeah, and that's clearly been successful...

They went to back to back NBA finals in the last decade and were the team that knocked the Charlotte Hornets out of the playoffs in their last game at the Hive so....

The Nets beat the Hornets, your point?.... the NJ Nets still failed in NJ... Brooklyn Nets will be successful though I would imagine... especially with Jay-Z and being in Brooklyn... just all lines up for a good thing....

This has been planned for a while...

Sure has, took 6 years to go thru and get finalized by the NBA Board Of Governors. Do casual "Hornets fans" got 4-6 years of whining in them? I dont know man. I would wager its more a fad that blew up because the Bobs suck this year. An escape for "fans".

Here's how the new Nets color scheme will look...

The logo looks kinda cool

If Jordan does rebrand, I'd actually prefer something completely new (I'm not a Hornets or Bobcats guy). Not nostalgia driven or the current name...a true rebrand where the city of Charlotte decides. Have an public creative challenge and vote. If they end up voting Bobcats so be it...if they end up wanting Hornets back so be it. Just let the city itself decide if Jordan ever gets to that point.

    • Just world fallacy:  "If you're poor you MUST be lazy and deserve to live in poverty" "If you're rich it's obviously because you worked hard and are deserving" No gray areas. No societal or logistically or racial barriers which might hold you back. Status quo is good enough. "If I worked hard I have no interest in helping anyone else not because I'm a shitty person but because I feel like suffering builds character." And the same folks making these statements claim we can't think critically and have nuanced discussion. Comical. 

    • Don't even bring Cam in the conversation. He's heads above Derek Carr in accomplishments from NFL records to accolades. Cam deserves his $. There's no comparison.

    • So I guess I lived a bit of a jaded life, as someone who comes from a mixed race background(mom is Hispanic, dad was white) I've never looked or judged someone based on their race. It was just how I was raised and how I've always viewed things.  And many of my friends were the same way, no one cared and we all came from the same middle class and suburban background. So I thought racism was nothing more then a political myth. I didn't even believe racism was still real when Obama was first elected, if anything I felt that his election just furthered my belief that racism was a lie a played out card for political advantage  harkening to an old dark past of American history that I felt had died back in the 60's. An age many years before my own exsistence came to be. Because "look we have elected a black president!" How can we be a racist society if we have a minority president? And boy was I wrong. Since Obama was elected all I have seen since then was how divided we really are as a country based on race relations, now I in no way believe Obama caused any of this, I believe it was something that was already there and was just now brought back to he surface and to the political forefront since his election. But it truely didn't sink in for me till the last 4 years, with the BLM movement, and counter movements, and Trump winning election. Some things that I thought were from a bygone era have rooted and showed their head again.  So 4 years ago I realized racism was alive and well in America and I feel terrible that it took me that long to realize it.
