Default Report: Prohkorov Preparing for the Nets

Quote:
On the same day New York State approved a revised plan for Barclays Center, reports circulated that Russia’s richest man may finance the arena in return for a stake in the team. Reuters, AP, the Times and Russian media are all reporting the talks and Mikhail Prokhorov’s office confirmed he’s “preparing an offer”. Prohkorov would be among the NBA’s richest owners with assets rivaling the Blazers’ Paul Allen.

This could be good for the Nets. And having a rich owner would be pretty good too.

this has been a distinct possibility for some time now, and if it actually happens would be the best thing that happened to the nets since thorn rolled into town. i mean absolutely fantastic... a slam dunk... a grand slam... <insert cliche of choice>.

this sale would seal the deal emphatically on the new arena and open up a whole new possibility for attracting star free agents that the nets have never had before. the big apple... a state-of-the-art arena... a mega-rich owner who understands the game very well.

this is the kind of sensational event that could make us real players in the 2010 free agent chase... not the fantasy players that we've been so far. do i sound stoked about this? :)
