Claiming Brooklyn: Nets/arena CEO Yormark issues congratulations to gold medalist Williams on behalf of "Brooklyn"

A tweet from Nets/Barclays Center CEO Brett Yormark:

Well, the Nets' Deron Williams, like any gold medalist, deserves congratulations, but Jersey-to-BK guy Yormark is pushing it when claiming to speak for "Brooklyn."

Someone like Borough President Marty Markowitz, who surely will issue a statement praising Williams, has a better claim, as do numerous others who are not promoting a specific brand.
