Monday afternoon, Brooklyn Nets CEO Brett Yormark took a basketball, stepped underneath a strip of yellow caution tape and laid down a dribble upon the herringbone-patterned court at Barclays Center. Moments later, he was sinking a layup and -- egged on by arena construction workers -- shedding his jacket and swishing jumpers.

After nine years of envisioning the moment, Yormark had finally stepped foot on the Barclays Center hardwood.
