Brooklyn Arena On Track For 2012 Opening
by Jeanine Ramirez
Nets CEO Brett Yormark gave NY1 a tour of the site. He says the construction is right on track for a 2012 opening when the Nets, for the first time, will play in Brooklyn.
"They've been underserved in the area of sports and entertainment for years. Since the dodgers left in 1957. We're the home team. We're coming back. And we're giving them something to root for," said Nets CEO Brett Yormark.
Thank goodness. We've been bored out of our wits for the last 54 years.
"We're bringing the circus here and Disney on Ice. We have a college franchise we're developing with IMG College for lots of great college sports with basketball and hockey," Yormark said.
If it's not Yormark's usual hyperbole, that may be some news. There's been some question as to the arena's suitability for ice hockey.
