Prokhorov Misses Nets Home Opener
Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov issued a statement through the media relations department Tuesday explaining why he could not be present for last night’s home opener.
“I very much wanted to be with you today, but other obligations have prevented me from making the trip to the home opener,’’ the statement read.
“I will be watching and rooting for the team from Moscow. Rest assured that I am with you in spirit and will be with you in body, too, as soon as my schedule permits. To Brook Lopez, wishing you a speedy recovery. For the rest of the team, it’s great to see everyone back on the court. Go Nets!”
