Posted on: September 10th, 2009 by Mark Ginocchio Comments

NBC New York talks some more about the new Barclays designs and links to video of Nets co-owner Jay-Z on the Late Show with David Letterman Wednesday night. Jay-Z sounded optimistic about the move to Brooklyn during the interview.

The New York Observer gives an overview of the many iterations of the Atlantic Yards development in pictures.

Develop Don’t Destroy Brooklyn discusses a new report released by New York City’s Independent Budget Office, which shows the Barclays arena would be a $40 million loss for New York City with an additional loss of $180 million in opportunity costs.

Continuing with their off-season trends of top 10 lists, Ball Don’t Lie lists the 10 best passers of the past decade with former Net and Devin Harris trading chip Jason Kidd ranking at the top of the list.

The Nets homepage has an interview up today with team president Rod Thorn who was the man who drafted Michael Jordan for the Bulls back in the day (in Rod we trust).

Fresh off of saying Brook Lopez will average 10+ rebounds this season, Dime says Devin Harris is one of five new players who will average 9+ assists.
