Nets' Brooklyn Fate Could Rest with One Man

Sheldon Silver is the speaker of the New York State Assembly. He has said nice things about Bruce Ratner's Atlantic Yards project--and Nets' arena--as recently as Thursday. He even set aside $100 million in state money for infrastructure improvements. But he has not said how he will vote this week on final approval...and therein lies the fate of the project.
