Is Atlantic Yards imploding like the stock market, with widespread panic taking hold? Norman Oder covers the Bergen Record's report today that a Nets insider "is telling people that the move to Brooklyn will never, ever happen.

The leaks coming out of the basketball firmament just keep coming. Ian O'Connor, a columnist for the Bergen Record, writes that the Nets will stay in New Jersey, quoting Gov. Jon Corzine and finding a team official:
One longtime Nets’ official, a man who’s made big management decisions in the past, is telling people that the move to Brooklyn will never, ever happen. "Bruce just won’t end up with the money to do it," the official said. "Forget it."
