Yormark claims Prokhorov purchase helps spur record sales of season tickets

Nets CEO Brett Yormark tells Sports Business Journal, "We’re off to the best start in new season-ticket sales in team history in large part because our fans see how committed ownership is to winning and because we have such a compelling story to tell."

Well, maybe, but until and unless he releases statistics we can't be sure.

After all, Yormark's credibility is a tad thin, given that last July he claimed "we're having one of the best off-seasons that we've had in years."

Then again, the Nets have nowhere to go but up. And they do have a top draft pick--we'll know tomorrow about the lottery number--and a lot of cap space to buy free agents.

And there's a new arena on the way, paid for in part by naming rights that the state simply gave away.
