Nets' Yormark on LBJ, Brooklyn and Dolphin Rumors

Brett Yormark was on WFAN's Boomer and Carton this morning. Among other things, the Nets CEO & President downplayed the Nets' chances of landing will-be free agent LeBron James, praised the work of Kiki Vandeweghe and Rod Thorn, and addressed the seemingly impossible task of finally getting to Brooklyn. Interestingly, Yormark also denied rumors he was offered a position with the Miami Dolphins, and shunned a statement by an unnamed source at the New Jersey Sports & Exposition Authority (as quoted by Carton) that the Meadowlands' Izod Center would be more profitable should the Nets, the arena's sole client, chose to abandon the venue.

He touched upon something that has seemed to be brushed aside with the Brooklyn snafu: the eminent domain case the team has been fighting.
