The Brooklyn Nets aren't quite an expansion team, but the team's move to one of the five boroughs has absolutely been treated like a new beginning for the franchise.

Though the slumping Brooklyn Nets kicked off a road-heavy stretch in disappointing fashion, a visit to Charlotte could help them bounce back.
Hoping to avoid a fifth loss in six games, Brooklyn tries for a sixth consecutive win over the NBA-worst Bobcats on Wednesday night.
The Nets (34-26), whose 33 home games are tied for the most in the league, will be spending most of the next...
