New, comments

In a discussion of the difficulties facing professional sports in a troubled economy, NBA Commissioner David Stern endorsed the Nets plans for relocating to Brooklyn and said he remains confident the team will break ground this summer. "Yes, they will, I'm told," he said at a Wall Street Journal conference on pro sports future. "I'm sure." Stern has long favored the Brooklyn move, citing the age of the IZOD Center.
