Brooklyn Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov released this official statement today:
I’d like to thank Nets management and players for all their efforts over the course of this crazy season. Despite roster changes, injuries and a difficult start, you clawed us back into contention. It made for a thrilling spring. And to the fans, thank you for your support through thick and thin. Next season, we pick up right where we left off!
Prokhorov famously guaranteed a championship within five years of owning the team, or he’d punish himself by getting married. He has one year left for the team to come through.
