Mitch Lawrence talks to Lawrence Frank who will return to New Jersey for the first time on Wednesday when his Pistons face the Nets at Prudential Center. Frank tells Lawrence that it will be a homecoming and nothing ugly, in spite of the way he was unceremoniously dumped after going 0-16 two years ago.
"No hard feelings," he said. "Hey look, I was there for 10 years. I loved it there. We all move on."
Frank also talked about Bruce Ratner (who he helped teach the NBA game) and Barclays Center.
"Bruce Ratner’s persistence in making Brooklyn happen was unbelievable, because I lived through it and I know what he was going through," Frank said. "I remember it almost went down the tubes a few times. But he stayed with it, even after the economy crashed, so I’m going to be so happy for Bruce when that building opens. I know all the sweat and the hard work he put in and everything he had to go through. It’s going to be a great day for him."
