Won't happen...MSG is pretty territorial. Remember when the Jets announced plans for a Manhattan Stadium? Cablevision/MSG actually ran a huge ad campaign with TV spots against it. Their "official" stance was irresponsible tax money, parking and traffic it would cause, but real reason is a Jets Stadium in Manhattan would be a huge threat to MSG's Manhattan monopoly on concerts/events (Radio City, Beacon Theater and obviously MSG are among MSG's properties)..

Can't imagine they're welcoming of the Barclays Center with open arms...Plus the Nets owner ran a huge billboard near MSG last summer...
