Yormark seemed stunned when asked about the job by WFAN’s Craig Carton. “I’m committed to the Nets, committed to the (Barclays Center)”. The Net CEO again said the Nets would break ground early in 2009 and be in Brooklyn by the 2011-12 season.

NYC Communities, Community Controversy - Kelly Carter describes both sides of the coin in detail, and in the end sides with DDDB:

If people do not join the fight against the Ratner Project with Develop Don’t Destroy Brooklyn then they will regret it later after Atlantic Yards is complete. They will realize that from this project their community will now be dark and gloomy from the shadow that is cast over them from all the skyscrapers that are going to be built, they will have to leave earlier for work because of all the traffic of cars and public transportation, there will be an overcrowding issue from all the new apartments being built, and their community will be forced to change and be different and lost forever from the Atlantic Yards project.
