Stern Optimistic about Brooklyn Arena

In a Q. and A. Friday, Commissioner David Stern discussed plans for new arenas around the NBA, including in Brooklyn. While critics continue to battle Bruce Ratner in the courts, Stern is more optimistic about Brooklyn than he is about Sacramento, Orlando, Seattle or Las Vegas. He noted that site work is already underway and he expects the Net owner's legal victories to "accelerate", permitting an early finish to the arena.
