    People are suggesting it's the NY expansion team.

    Since when did this dude get into lax reporting?

    They announce a new expansion team just in time for the season to be cancelled? Perfect.

    The NY 'Aints franchise returning as number 13 is foreshadowing

    If this press conference is really happening, will any of the media in attendance ask about the lockout? I doubt it.

    I suspect that it will be at the recently renovated Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

    I hope they do good marketing otherwise I am not optimistic.

    Last night, I was watching an NBA G-League game (D-League - the development league - changed its name to G as part of the sponsorship of Gatorade). It was the Capital City Go-Go or something like that at the Long Island Nets, a 2nd-year team owned by the Brooklyn Nets. Almost no one was in the stands. Official attendance was 1019. I mean, geez, the Albany Attack averaged over 3 times that.

    If they do, Sarah Sanders will have their press rights revoked and remove them from the room. :eek:

    Nick isn't really going to do this is he? Announce a new team for a billionaire while his owners fight over penny pinching the players? Incredibly tone deaf

    I will laugh if the season is delayed a few weeks and BR Live tells them to **** off.

    NY expansion would have been a STELLAR announcement to follow an announcement of "We have a new CBA that will get us through 2022"........Serious media attention right before the rest of the teams start games. Maybe line up a few NLL TV subscribers from the LI burbs.......they can enjoy the NLL's "Improved Digital Presence" :p:(

    Doing it this way just makes the faceplant a bit funnier if that's what ends up happening

    Remember when the NLL was broadcasting games on YouTube for free with no problems whatsoever? Good times.

    The NLL doesn't know the meaning of "tone deaf". It's what you get when you have interns running things.

    GF Capital and the Nets have partnered before. So likely will not be fully owned by Tsai. Get this CBA done, TD Garden and the Golden State Warriors up next.

    how many people do you expect to show up to essentially a pick up game of basketball in NY?

    This. There’s a reason most of those teams play in small venues. The Knicks’ farm team plays in White Plains at a venue that’s practically a high school gymnasium.

    That's cause the best basketball in that region has always been at Rucker park, not any.stadium.

    Raptor 905 are lit but they won in 2016 and lost finals in 2017. Play in Mississauga in a 5k arena
