( 4UMF NEWS ) Gov. Christie Says Goodbye To Nets:
The outspoken governor held nothing back Monday when asked about the Nets’ decision to leave the state after spending the past 35 years in New Jersey, including the last two in the state’s largest city.
Christie said that if the Nets didn’t want to stay in New Jersey, the state didn’t want them. He said the team spent the last two seasons in one of the country’s most vibrant cities and he sarcastically said they were leaving for Brooklyn.
Speaking after a bill signing in Newark, the fiery Christie said he would not be shedding any tears over the Nets’ departure.
