December 27, 2011
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.—Before Tuesday's home opener, NETS owner Mikhail Prokhorov issued the following statement:
"To Nets players, staff and fans,
I very much wanted to be with you today, but other obligations have prevented me from making the trip to the home opener. I will be watching and rooting for the team from Moscow. Rest assured that I am with you in spirit, and will be with you in body, too, as soon as my schedule permits. To Brook Lopez, wishing you a speedy recovery. For the rest of the team, it's great to see everyone back on the court. Go Nets!"
