A columnist not so optimistic about the Nets' future

Columnist Marc Berman in today's New York Post, Compared to Nets, Knicks’ future is rainbow-coated cakewalk:
The Nets were well ahead of the Knicks in the standings and wound up ahead again on the scoreboard, 92-88, moving to 3-0 against their rivals this season.
But that’s the only place Brooklyn is well ahead. As the Nets vie for the eighth playoff seed and the Knicks scrape the NBA’s bottom, current appearances are deceiving.
As shaky as it may be, banking on cap space, a 30-year-old, injury-prone Carmelo Anthony and an aging Jose Calderon, the Knicks still have a brighter future than the residents of Barclays Center.
...Despite a revitalizing borough with a reliable Atlantic Terminal transportation hub nearby, the basketball team could be going to pot after this season along with its billionaire owner...
The Nets? The best you can say is the club is expected to practice in Brooklyn next season and not in their depressing old corporate-park Jersey digs
