According to a post at NJ.com, a Thursday rally in Brooklyn brought out about 3,000 to support the Atlantic Yards project there (the future home of the soon-to-be-former NJ Nets). The event was held to support the $4.2 billion project, and included free hot dogs and T-shirts near Borough Hall.
As a former Nets fan (after they decided to dis Jersey), my opinion is 'good riddance.' I wish them the same playoff success they had in Jersey. New York already has one terrible pro basketball franchise: Now they can double the disappointment. Jersey fans put up with decades of disappointment from this team and kept supporting it. This is how they get paid back. Nice.
