New, comments

Bruce Ratner may scale back the Nets' Brooklyn arena. The Nets "are exploring new concepts for the arena that would transform it from an architectural masterpiece into a much less expensive and much more traditional sports venue," reports the Wall Street Journal. While architect Frank Gehry hasn't been fired, Ratner says he's trying to build "a world class venue in an incredibly difficult economic environment".
