Intellectuals Debate the Brooklyn Nets

First it was about basketball, then architecture or eminent domain or, most recently, race. Now, moving the Nets to Bruce Ratner's gargantuan Atlantic Yards is stirring a deeper, intellectual debate in the pages of n+1 magazine. Jonathan Liu, a self-professed Nets fan--and netsdaily reader, writes that he has come to love Ratner and suggests his critics yearn for "a comfortable, impossible stasis." Nikal Saval thinks Ratner has filled a "void in ourselves", which apparently is not a good thing.
