Renovated gym Brett Yormark's gift to neighborhood

On Wednesday, Brett Yormark and children from the Madison Square Boys and Girls Club cut the ribbon on a Brooklyn Nets-themed basketball court at the club's Navy Yard Clubhouse on Nassau Street.

The court is a replica of the Nets home court (minus the herringbone but with the logos). It took about two months and $75,000 to renovate, all of it paid for by the Nets CEO's Yormark Family Foundation.The court was the foundation's first project.

The new gym has a new basketball court, bleachers and wall padding. After the ribbon cutting, hundreds of local residents watched two club team dedicate the court.

Yormark said he hopes teh kids will take away the "hard work, commitment and passion" he associates with the Brooklyn Nets "brand." Jeff Scott, the Nets community relations director, told Alyonka Larionov of BCTV that he hopes those who use the court will become Brooklyn Nets fans.
