Prokhorov: ‘We Don’t Want To Be The Knicks’

by November 30, 2010

The Nets owner has a pretty simple message for the Knicks, who’ve been running ads that take shots at the team across the river. The NY Post has the scoop: “Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov has a simple message for the Knicks: You are not worth imitating. In a commercial promoting Tuesday night’s Knicks-Nets game, MSG ran this voiceover: ‘Hey Nets. You can walk like us, you can talk like us, but you ain’t never gonna be like us. Knicks, Nets, Tuesday, 7:30, MSG.’ MSG produces the commercial, but both the Knicks and the network are owned by the Dolans. Prokhorov responded in a statement.’I don’t think we want to be like the Knicks. I think we’d more like to resemble the Lakers,’ the owner said as a shot towards the Knicks recent run of futility.”
