Sports of The Times: Hitting the Bottom, the Bottom Hits Back
The New York Times
by George Vecsey
In a column exploring the woeful goings-on on the Madison Square Garden hardwood, columnist George Vecsey displays a level of skepticism about the progress of Atlantic Yards rarely seen in the pages of his newspaper:
James’s occasional forays into the Garden even have a New York angle in that he is committed to his home region Cavaliers through the spring of 2011, but after that he will be a free agent.
His pal, the rapper Jay-Z, has a tiny share of the Nets, and there has been fanciful thinking that James could someday move on to Brooklyn with the Nets, based on the assumption that the Nets will actually put shovels in the ground and be open for business by then. By then, this nasty business with the Knicks will surely have played itself out.
