CEO Freaks Out at Fan!

Keith BennettCorrespondent IMarch 23, 2010

 Seems like losing is catching up with the Nets. One of the NETS' top executives showed more fight last night than most of their players have all season. CEO Brett Yormark, usually one of the most fan-friendly executives in the league, got into a heated confrontation with a spectator know as the Bag man. Following the Nets' 99-89 loss to the Heat at the Meadowlands. The loss -14th the straight overall at home and eighth straight overall - put the Nets record at 7-63 and kept them on pace to break the 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers'  record of 73 losses in a season. With the Nets trailing 79-67 between the third and fouth quarters, Yormark left his courtside seat and passed Chris Lisi of Middletown, N.J., who was sitting in the secord row and wearing a paper bag over his head. Yormark then walked back toward Lisi, and in full view of reporters and photographers got into a shouting match with Lisi and a pal. As Yormark jabbed his finger toward Lisi as he shouted something, Lisi pulled out a pair of tickets and waved them back at the CEO, who then stomped away as security personnel approached. Yomark show no class as a CEO of NETS' franchise. Bag Man is hateing the losing and all Nets fans too! I think losing is coming to a boiling point with fans and ownership. The season coming to a end and new blood is coming! Thank Goodness!
