Prokhorov still predicts championship by 2015
When Mikhail Prokhorov bought the Nets two years ago, he declared that the team will win a title by the end of the 2015 season.
And after seeing his team's roster dramatically overhauled this offseason ahead of the Nets beginning play in Brooklyn this fall, Prokhorov is still standing behind that prediction.
"For me, there's only one place: number one," Prokhorov said Friday on a platform overlooking the court inside his team's brand-new home, Barclays Center, in Brooklyn. "And I do my best to reach the championship."
"We're moving on ... slowly, slowly, step-by-step. It's easy to make a strong team, but it's very difficult to make a championship team. So we're on the right way. And, still, I'm expecting our championship within three years."
