As everyone knows by now, the Nets have moved to Brooklyn, and will look to be the team of New York. With the resigning of superstar Deron Williams, the acquisition of Joe Johnson, the new Barclays Center, hip-hop mogul Jay-Z, and mysterious owner Mikhali Prokhorov, there is a ton of hype surrounding this team.

The move to Brooklyn seems to be unanimously a good one; New Jersey wasn’t considered a great location by many, and they can take some of the spotlight from the underachieving Knicks.

Well, for one, Gerald Wallace isn’t completely thrilled about moving into New York.

According to the New York Daily News, New York City isn’t exactly the best place for the veteran forward:

“I’m afraid of New York City,” the 6-foot-7 forward said.

Remember, Gerald Wallace is the guy who the Nets will call on to defend the likes of LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, and Paul Pierce in the Eastern Conference. He’s not scared of the elite players in the league, but he is afraid of the Big Apple.

All joking aside, you have to understand where he’s coming from. Gerald Wallace is one of the simpler NBA players, and is not one of the guys who cries to go to a bigger market so he can get more attention; Carmelo Anthony, I’m looking at you.

“Crash” goes on to say that he’ll also be needing a driver in the city, which is certainly understandable.

Whether he’s afraid of New York City or not, it’ll be interesting to see how the Nets come together this season in Brooklyn.
