Sometimes I think the teams Roy Boe founded are cursed at least when it comes to arena issues. The Nets arena has hit a snag, but it doesn't look like it will delay the project.
The exterior of the Barclays Center will be made up of 11,998 weathered steel panels, none of them like another. The distinctive facade is likely to be the most iconic feature of the arena, but with much of the panels still to be emplaced, the company that manufactures them has closed its doors.http://www.netsdaily.com/2012/1/3/2680307/arena-facade-manufacturer-closes-effect-on-arena-timetable-uncertain
Who knows maybe reuniting the Nets and Islanders can end both teams curses on the arena front and playing front as well.
