Ticket Sales Are Like New Jobs In Brooklyn

Daily News columnist Mike Lupica rips Nets' CEO Brett Yormark for claiming to have sold out Continental Airlines Arena Wednesday night, comparing this "fuzzy math" to owner Bruce Ratner's promises of new jobs that will be created in Brooklyn. Lupica says that Ratner originally promised 10,000 new jobs in the Atlantic Yards development and that that number currently stands at about 2,500. Many similar criticisms are discussed in articles in both New York Times and Daily News.
