08:05 AM ET 10.08 | There is new life in the Nets. This isn't New Jersey anymore. The Nets might actually have a home-court advantage. Brooklyn practiced at the Barclays Center for the first time Sunday and raved about the team's new digs, giving a thumbs-up to just about everything while taking thinly veiled shots at their last home in Newark. "I've never seen anything like it," Kris Humphries said about the $1 billion arena. "Everything is so much bigger and nicer than what we'Unprecedented element to Nets new arenare used to." The Nets finished an abysmal 9-24 at home last season. ... [Avery Johnson] detailed one small issue: the open entrance to the street allowed sunlight to shine through to the arena, which could become a problem during afternoon games.

Different location, same Nets equals embarrassment. I billion dollars could've beautified downtown Booklyn to a greater degree, whatta a waste of money!

Both the Knicks and the Nets are the reasons why I couldn't care less about the NBA. The NBA is a crap league full of prima donnas and men that would run you over just to get the dollar on the other side of the street.

Maybe i need to be enlightened. Don't the nets basically have the same team as last year? How have they gotten so much better? Will Johnson make that much of a difference?
