The Brooklyn Nets are a complete mess proper now and their proprietor is a bit on the delusional aspect. On Sunday it was introduced that coach Lionel Hollins and common supervisor Billy King have been fired amongst others and virtually all the firings have been discovered by way of information launch. For some time it was unclear who was even in cost in Brooklyn. Nets proprietor Mikhail Prokhorov made his first public remarks they usually have been a doozy.
Prokhorov – who famously declared his workforce would win a championship inside 5 years of him buying it – stated:
“I’ve to take a look at the truth.”
Then a couple of minutes later:
“I’m positive, for the subsequent season, I hope we’ll be championship contender.”
Thus ended the temporary period of sensible expectations Brooklyn.
The Nets are at present 10-27, devoid of expertise and don’t have their very own first-round decide till 2019. Not precisely a brilliant future.
“Frankly talking, I deserve championship now far more than six years in the past,” Prokhorov stated with a slight grin.
It’s typically troublesome with Prokhorov to inform the place the joke ends and the delusion begins.
He spoke extra earnestly about Brooklyn needing solely a “small reset,” a phrase he used a number of occasions. Prokhorov emphasised Brooklyn’s main cap area this summer time, however almost each workforce could have that – and a a lot clearer path to rivalry.
Their solely crucial isn’t buying and selling their restricted future belongings – Rondae Hollis-Jefferson,Chris McCullough and no matter picks they’ve left – for instant assist.
“I hope we can be again, not as a playoff workforce, as a championship contender,” Prokhorov stated. “That is my solely objective.”
