We need to settle the arena and be treated like a real team. It wasn't when the new owner took over the Nets that the players wanted to play for them, it was when they were about to go to Brooklyn! Players even took less money to play there. Just finish this. Brooklyn Islanders NOW!
Also, an interesting idea. Why can't they split between Long Island and Brooklyn? Of the 40 or so games, play 30 in Brooklyn and 10 in Long Island (or whatever breakdown......). This might keep the LI fans excited and a new Brooklyn fanbase.
