Stern Sees Nets Move as Likely but When?

NBA Commissioner David Stern sees the Nets move to Brooklyn as increasingly likely and suggests that fans will know by year's end what to think about a timetable. The commissioner, who last year criticized New Jersey officials for their lack of commitment to the franchise, said Nets owner, Bruce Ratner, is sure to face legal and other hurdles. That's to be expected in New York, he added. Meanwhile, Ratner has hired the top aide to the New York legislator most opposed to the arena plan.
