Prokhorov Defends Absentee Owner Claims

Updated

on

A little less bullish than his normal self when discussing the championship potential of his franchise, Mikhail Prokhorov saved his most passionate words to defend himself against criticisms that he’s an absentee owner.

“Frankly speaking, there’s a lot of criticism that I am not in Brooklyn. But I just have a question for you: Do you really think you need me sitting in the arena to see a game?” said Prokhorov, noting that he has been busy preparing for the Winter Olympics in Sochi as the president of Russia’s Biathlon Union. “My friends, we are living in the 21st century. And in spite of the fact I have no computer, I still have a subscription for NBA games and, for me, it’s like enough to even have a look on the stats so you can understand what is going on.”
