Mikhail Prokhorov Approved as Nets Owner

The New Jersey Nets’ new owner was approved by the NBA’s board of Governors, which pleases David Stern: “We are pleased that the NBA’s Board of Governors approved Mikhail Prokhorov’s purchase of majority ownership of the Nets, welcoming into the NBA ownership ranks the league’s first majority investor from outside of North America,’ NBA Commissioner David Stern said. ‘We anticipate that his passion for the game and business acumen will be of considerable value not only to the Nets franchise but to the entire NBA.”‘

    Prediction: the Nets land the #1 pick taking John Wall, the Nets buy LeBron, Amare joins, Coach Cal leaves Kentucky, Harris, wall, lebron, amare, and lopez take the nets from worst to first.

    Then Lebron chokes in semifinals, Wall gets wrist surgery, Lopez gets injured slamming a glass door.

    if anybody was wondering where Prokhorov was when this became official: he was doing what he loves to do: http://rutube.ru/tracks/3233443.html?v=8d7f623f97f0802a5ea29661db8d5c29&autoStart=true&bmstart=9 Yes. Really. I liked that he said that he will give Nets fans “plenty to cheer about”. Can’t wait!
