Brooklyn Nets- " NJ Blew It" Says Stern
The Meadowlands was always a terrible location for a basketball/hockey arena. Super-easy to get to if you have a car and live in NJ, very hard to get to if you live elsewhere or do not have a car.
I'm not sure that the Devils' arena will do much for Newark, a city which that has serious problems. Would have made more sense if they would have both Nets and Devils.
But the proposed Brooklyn arena could be an very positive thing for the borough on many levels.
