Last night, the Nets lost their fourteenth consecutive home game — they sure are sending out their East Rutherford digs with a bang — and fans commemorated the occasion as fans often do: By putting a paper bag over their heads. (To exemplify embarrassment, not to asphyxiate themselves, as far as we know.) No big deal, right? It happens. Well, ordinarily mild-mannered Nets CEO Brett Yormark apparently reached his breaking point: He ended up in a shouting match with the paper-bag fan. The fan, amusingly, had no idea who Yormark was, which must have made the exchange doubly confusing and hilarious. Fans wearing paper bags to Nets games in future seasons should be aware that if they do so around impending owner Mikhail Prokhorov, He Will Break Them.
