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...

I think it's Zoning. Dolan and MSG made the Islanders organization sign something saying they wont get too close to Manhattan (No Bronx, no some of Brooklyn. But Queens and Brooklyn NEAR Queens is ok.) Maybe same thing?
