The Nets in Newark would be a lovely catalyst for economic growth downtown.
A few minutes ago, when a caller asked about a potential Nets move to Newark: “I think he will sell as soon as the Brooklyn thing dies, and it looks like it’s dying. I think Bruce Ratner will sell. I don’t think he has any interest in the team, other than bringing it in as the centerpiece to the new project in Brooklyn. Which, if you read and look at the opposition, and realize the climate economically and everything else, looks like it might be dead.”
