So new Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov wants his team to be a dynasty. He believes it's possible. But he also isn't sure what the name of his team should be during that dynasty. Here's what he told reporters yesterday, per Julian Garcia of the New York Daily News.â†µ
"Let me ask you some questions," Prokhorov said to a small group of reporters during a private brunch meeting at the Four Seasons Hotel in Manhattan. "What about the name of the team? Is it okay, the Nets? Or do we have to try to find something new?â†µ
"I'm a foreigner, you know," he said. "I need your piece of advice. I can put Russian name and nobody knows what it is. I can put the name of a girlfriend and every time I change, I need to change the name of the team."â†µ
We at SB Nation couldn't help but jump in here with some suggestions. We think he'll like them.
