Prokhorov counsels patience, avoids questions about Nets' attendance, etc.

From the Record, Mikhail Prokhorov weighs in on Nets slow start:
The Record asked Prokhorov about several problems hanging over the Nets, including their lack of future first round draft picks; the drop-off in attendance.
Prokhorov was also asked if he’s worried the Nets might lose fans to the suddenly-surging Knicks, and if his franchise missed an opportunity to gain traction with New York fans over the last few years when the Knicks were struggling.
But Prokhorov did not address any of these questions in the email.

Instead, he sent a message of patience for his struggling team.
Devin Kharpertian of the Brooklyn Game suggested that Mikhail Prokhorov’s most interesting answers were the ones he didn’t give.

Added Net Income (aka Bob Windrem) of NetsDaily:
Prokhorov, of course, is as hamstrung by the Nets lack of flexibility as those he works for. There's little he can do under the CBA to improve the team's situation. Some in the organization think that he and Nets chairman Dmitry Razumov will not let the Nets be "really bad," but no one is suggesting just how they would do that.
