State of the Union: New Jersey Nets
ESPN Radio [The Seth Everett Show]
Newark Star-Ledger columnist Steve Politi and New Jersey Nets' CEO Brett Yormark give the reality and fantasy on the state of the Nets in back-to-back interviews with ESPN Radio's Seth Everett.
The award for best delusional Yormark line? A tie between "we're having one of the best off-seasons that we've had in years" and "I think the world of Nets basketball right now couldn't be better."
Other great (and equally untrue) claims: moving the Nets to Brooklyn is about jobs and affordable housing; half the housing units will be affordable; the "leaked" renderings were not approved by Forest City; and the Nets will be in Brooklyn for the 2011-2012 season.
