Nets Dancers Kick Up and Dig in Their Heels

netsdancersworkout.jpg New York Times dedicates no less than 627 words to the vital subject of the Nets dancers' workouts. Yet they could only muster up a measly 227 words for yesterday's 421-a article, missing the Ratner carve-out component completely.

“I worked out body parts I didn’t know I had,” Adar Wellington, the squad’s captain, said after a full day’s workout, the first of four days that she and her teammates spent flipping tires, rolling beer kegs, swinging sledgehammers, and running and squatting with sandbags.

“It was kind of a scary workout,” said Brenna Klingler, a rookie who leapt to the N.B.A. from Rutgers, where she was the captain of the dance team last season.
