The observation came from an unbylined "web editor" writing in a New York Post sports blog, The Back Page, about the prospects for Cleveland superstar LeBron James moving to the Nets:
Less than a month ago, Ratner told The Post that groundbreaking would take place in September and the Nets could play in Brooklyn by the 2011-12 season.
Now, the timetable for the project's completion is 24-29 months, down from the 30 months predicted for the Gehry project. So the Nets would be in a new Brooklyn arena for the start of the 2012-13 season.
Would James play in New Jersey for one season before crossing the river to open the new place? Maybe.
Would he play in New Jersey for the rest of his career? No way.
