HOSPITALS PLAY MUSICAL CHAIRS: HSS has been a business partner of the team and has provided medical care to the Nets for some time. However, when the Nets moved to Brooklyn in '12, the team was seeking local roots, so it signed Maimonides Medical Center as the team's official hospital. Under the new agreement, HSS becomes "the official hospital of the Brooklyn Nets," while Maimonides' new designation is "Hometown Hospital of the Brooklyn Nets.'' Additionally, Brooklyn Hospital has a deal through which it is the "Official Hospital of the Barclays Center." Shapiro emphasized HSS' authentic medical ties as a principal reason behind the entitlement deal. "If you're not actually taking care of the players, it's just like being the official car," he said. The Nets' practice facility has been in East Rutherford, New Jersey, since '98. When that facility is shuttered next year, it will mark the team's last connection to the Garden State, where it moved from Long Island in '77.
