Jay-Z: many talents, but arena timelines are beyond his expertise

Nets part-owner Jay-Z was on David Letterman the other night and was asked about the potential move of the team.

JZ: We're trying to get to Brooklyn. I think early December is the new date that we'll break ground and hopefully it will happen.

DL: How long will that take to get that stadium up and running?

JZ: Hopefully a year.

DL: A year--whoa. Good luck there.

Indeed. it's questionable that (symbolic or limited) groundbreaking would happen in December. And it's impossible to build an arena in a year. Two years, at best. The original design was to take 30-32 months.
