It's not bad enough to have to watch a New Jersey Nets game, but now the fans are getting yelled at by the CEO.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The New Jersey Nets' sad-sack season appeared to hit another low Monday night when CEO Brett Yormark shouted at a fan wearing a paper bag over his head. Yormark left his courtside seat at the IZOD Center late in the second half of New Jersey's 99-89 loss to the Miami Heat. Yormark then doubled back toward the fan, identified by the New York Daily News as Chris Lisi of Middletown, N.J.
The Nets are currently the worst team in the NBA. They have a 7-63 and are also shooting for the worst record in NBA history.
With just 12 games remaining in the season, New Jersey has to win at least two to avoid setting a new low win record. The record was set by the 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers at a 9-73 season.
