Brooklyn Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov remains convinced that his expensive investment in the NBA remains money well spent in the short and long term.

Never, Prokhorov confirmed, did he consider pushing the panic button and firing general manager Billy King or any other front-line staff.

“I’m realistic in sports,” he said. “We have a lot of new players. We have unfortunately a lot of injuries, so it’s not an excuse. But what, for me, is important is what was atmosphere of the team. It was positive, it was full support for Jason Kidd. That means, like, we need to wait.”
