The Nets look better today in Brooklyn than they did yesterday in Newark, Governor Christie

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said Tuesday that he doesn’t care that the Nets are vacating “The Garden State” to play at the Barclays Center in the borough of Brooklyn in New York City starting this autumn.

“They want to leave here and go to Brooklyn? Good riddance,” said Christie, 49, a Republican who became the 55th Governor of New Jersey when he assumed office in January 2010.
