Is anyone watching the Nets at the Izod Center?

Norman Oder doubts the veracity of the Nets' attendance claims.

A photo from last night's Nets game against the Washington Wizards shows a sea of empty seats at the Izod Center. Announced attendance was 15,062, more than three-quarters of the 19,968 capacity. Sure.

Despite his denials, it sure makes sense for Nets President Brett Yormark to be considering a move himself or a team move (temporary, at least) to the Prudential Center in Newark.

NoLandGrab: While there appear to have been nowhere near the claimed 15,000+ fans at the 'Zod last night, there were at least a few thousand, judging from the photos. What the camera can't reveal is how much those folks were actually paying for their tickets, if they were paying at all.
