No, Ratner didn't buy the Nets in 2003 to move them in 2009

From today's Times Sports section, and article headlined Nets Have Dug a Big Hole, but Their Foundation Is in Place :
Ratner purchased the franchise in 2003 for $300 million, originally planning to transplant the Nets from New Jersey in time for this season.
NoLandGrab's Eric McClure reminds us that the original move date was 2006 and also points out some other miscues.

Would you believe that some bloggers in Brooklyn have a heck of a lot more institutional memory than the Paper of Record?
