Critics of the Nets' new arena were out Thursday night when the Brooklyn Museum honored Nets' owner Bruce Ratner. Ratner, who has given generously to the museum over the years, was being awarded the Augustus Graham Medal for his "longstanding support of this museum and art and cultural institutions". Kanye West will be the featured artist at the accompanying gala. Critics contend Ratner is not a "good neighbor".
