Wait Until 2010, Nets Say of New Brooklyn Arena

The NY Times

Lookie who just caught on — we know that we spend way too much time bashing the Times, but this isn't exactly breaking news:

The Nets, who had hoped to move into a new arena near downtown Brooklyn in time for the 2009-10 season, have acknowledged that construction will not be finished until sometime in 2010.


NoLandGrab stumbled over the "soft release" of this news on November 1, when the new projected date for the Nets arena was quietly reported in the Star-Ledger, the NY Post and AP (via amNY).

Norman Oder of Atlantic Yards Report has been covering the improbability of a 2009 opening going back to May, 2007 (see, here, here, here, here, here).

Now that it's yesterday's news and Forest City Ratner feels like it's safe to come clean, the Times gets an exclusive?
