LeBron and Melo are in play as free agents. Other stars like Kevin Love and Rajon Rondo may be trait bait. And the Nets will be watching it all unfold on social media, just like me.
According to a report, the Nets are “far from” profitable, and Prokhorov is concerned that if the team is losing money it will scare away deep-pocketed bidders looking to buy Ratner’s stake.
NBA Draft operates via a goofy lottery system. There has to be a better alternative than picking ping-pong balls out of a machine. Like maybe a dance off?!
Brooklyn Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov says he’s proud of his team’s mettle despite falling short in the playoffs for the second straight year.
In as fitting an ending as you could script for this season, the host Heat roared back from an eight-point deficit in the last three minutes to send the Nets back to Brooklyn for good, 96-94.
Tick, tick. Somewhere in Russia, Mikhail Prokhorov is sitting in some chamber in his mansion ready to dismantle his expensive American toy.
The Nets as an organization came out in support of NBA Commissioner Adam Silver’s decision, issuing a statement that almost certainly had to require ownership approval. But Prokhorov’s recent absence has been noticed.
Let’s hold off on this New York City takeover thing, OK? Hey Deron Williams — how about the Nets winning a round in the playoffs first?
Mikhail Prokhorov first announced last year that he wanted to shift control of the team to a Russian-based company after the Kremlin passed a law regulating foreign holdings for public officials.
Collins heard his name called early in the second quarter and headed to the scorer’s table to check in. When he walked onto the court, he became the first openly gay athlete to play in one of the United States’ four major pro leagues.
For all the dollars Mikhail Prokhorov tossed at a roster full of stars, it was one of the last he spent, on a league-minimum contract no less, that has given Brooklyn a chance at salvaging the season.
In a season of unpredictable twists and turns, the Nets happen to be one of the hottest teams in the league right now after winning their sixth in seven games. But let’s be real — they’re not championship caliber.
The one move that King has to make now, as it’s three weeks overdue, is to fire Kidd. Kidd, who took the job only 10 days after retiring as a player, is unsurprisingly in over his shaved head.
With the Nets virtually tied for last place in the putrid Atlantic Division with a 5-14 record, it is time for patience to be replaced by urgency before the season is irrevocably lost.
This thing was doomed from day one. Jason Kidd coaching the Nets before the sweat dried on his jersey was bad business on nearly every level.
