With Jason Kidd gone, Devin Harris steps up to tout Brooklyn move

The Brooklyn Paper reported yesterday on The Downtown Brooklyn Partnership's new "It’s the Moment” marketing campaign, which involves New Jersey Nets star guard Devin Harris:
Harris talked about the brimming excitement for a sports team in Brooklyn.

“A city that hasn’t had a professional team since 1957 when the Dodgers left, [is] yearning for us,” Harris said about his squad’s planned move to the as-yet-unbuilt Atlantic Yards arena.

Oh yeah, yearning. I though Michael D'Antonio put that misinterpretation to rest.

Remember, State Senator Marty Golden declared, according to a 4/14/06 Courier-Life article:
“It is the chance of a lifetime to have stars such as Jason Kidd, Vince Carter, Richard Jefferson and all the others have their home court based in Brooklyn.”

Given that Kidd and Jefferson have been traded, Golden's chance is gone. So much for yearning.
