Nets' Owner Issues Steinbrenner Statement

Mikail Prokhorov, owner of the New Jersey Nets, has issued a statement on the death of New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner.

“I would like to express my deepest condolences to the Yankees organization and the Steinbrenner family on the passing of George Steinbrenner. He was more than a legend in the world of baseball, he was a man with true global impact. Mr. Steinbrenner was also a co-owner of the Nets during their most successful period in the NBA. For new franchise owners like myself, he was a model of how to build a dynasty team and what can be achieved if you have enough heart and vision. He was an absolute original.”
