In an interview last month that was posted a few days ago, Brett Yormark and his twin brother, the Florida Panthers CEO, talk about their ultimate goals. For Michael Yormark, whose Panthers lost to the the Devils, the ultimate goal is the Stanley Cup. But Nets and Barclays Center CEO says a championship is not his goal. Brooklyn is.

"My goal is not to win championships, believe it or not," Brett Yormark told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. "My goal for the last seven years is to bring sports and entertainment back to Brooklyn. Since the Dodgers left, it's been a market that's truly been under-served. It's been an incredible journey, 34 lawsuits, a downturn in the economy, a lockout. Thankfully, we're on our way. and that to me is probably going to be the highlight of my career."

Yormark also noted that Opening Night at Barclays, September 28, is the twins' 45th birthday. "It's our birthday. I told my owner we had to open on my birthday. So Michael will be invited," he said with a laugh.
