They really don't like each other. One day after Rod Thorn told the Post's Peter Vecsey that he "disliked" and didn't trust Brett Yormark, the Nets CEO took a swipe at the former head of the team's basketball operations.
""For the last couple of months I’ve been clearly focused on working with [general manager Billy King] and Avery on getting this franchise back to a best-in-class status," Yormark said Sunday. "Obviously there’s a lot of work to be done after Rod’s 12-70 season, both on and off the court."
Pinning the Nets' disastrous season on Thorn is likely to extend the feud between the two men. The Nets play the 76ers on Tuesday in Roanoke.
Meanwhile, Adrian Wojnarowski leaves no doubt where he stands on the dispute. He tweets, "As self-promoting, self-important, gravy-training carnival barkers go, Nets CEO Brett Yormark has no peer."
