The New York Press, in its special 2006 Super-Villain Edition, names Bruce Ratner its "most Loathsome" city resident, topping its annual list of 50. The Nets' principal owner is criticized for his displacement of "upper middle class homeowners" in the footprint of the new Nets arena and surrounding mini-city. Also on the list at No. 20: Isiah Thomas, the "un-manager".
