Did you see the Nets drew 14,000 last night? The Nets,Islanders and Devils are the satellite teams. The Rangers and Knicks are the main winter sports teams in NY. How many Nets fans are there in the NY metropolitan area? When Howie Rose was still on WFAN and before he became the Islanders TV guy,he used that "satellite teams" statement. Many of the people in NY area grew up rooting for the Knicks. They are not changing their rooting interest because the Nets moved to Brooklyn. Same thing with the Islanders.
