Farewell New Jersey Swamp Dragons

The New Jersey Nets played their last game in New Jersey last night (they lost of course). They'll move to Brooklyn next year and they'll still be the Nets. Which is a shame because they could have been the Swamp Dragons. Oh well.

The Nets' former stars -- er, players -- were out in full force, as the farewell prompted visits from players of Nets' seasons past. Honored players included Derrick Coleman, Kenny Anderson, Otis Birdsong, Albert King and Darryl Dawkins, whose pink suit came straight from the Craig Sager School of Wardrobe. Video tributes from former Nets, such as Buck Williams, Vince Carter, Kerry Kittles, Kenyon Martin and "Mr. Captain" himself, Jason Kidd, played throughout the evening. Even Chris Morris, who once famously wrote "Trade Me" on his sneakers, was honored at the fireworks-and-flash festivities. "It's an emotional time for the fans," Nets guard Anthony Morrow added. "It's exciting, but at the same time it's bittersweet."

As for the Govenor of New Jersey, he had a different message.

"I’m not going to the Nets game (Monday night) and my message to the Nets is ‘goodbye.’ They want to leave here and go to Brooklyn? Good riddance…

Ok then.
