Nets Executive Gets Into Argument With "Bag Man"

When your team is 7-63 and headed to a NBA record for losses in a season, getting into an argument with one of the few fans you have left is probably NOT a good idea. Then again, if it gets the New Jersey Nets some press (good or bad) it might be a positive.

Nah. You just look like a jerk in an expensive suit.

One of the Nets’ top executives showed more fight Monday 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 during the Nets’ 99-89 loss to the Heat at the Meadowlands. The loss – the team’s 14th straight at home and eighth straight overall – put the Nets 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 fourth quarters, Yormark left his courtside seat and passed Chris Lisi of Middletown, N.J., who was sitting in the second 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.
