Leaked rendering? Barclays Center image also appears in the latest ESDC documents

According to an article in Sports Business Journal (subscription only) Barclays won’t look like leaked rendering, Ellerbe Becket says:
The New York Times architecture critic Nicolai Ouroussoff can rest easy. The exterior of Barclays Center, the New Jersey Nets’ proposed Brooklyn arena, will look nothing like the image the Times published last month, according to James Poulson, Ellerbe Becket’s design director...

NetsDaily adds some more quotes: the design will be “less barnlike…something totally unexpected” and the design will evoke Brooklyn’s working class industrial history. (DDDB has full text.)

Well, the image below wasn't simply leaked to Ouroussoff. It also appeared in a document two weeks later from the Empire State Development Corporation (ESDC).
