  1. Keep your eye on the bouncing ball gentlemen;

    NY Times,

    “In May, Kenny Huang and other Chinese investors agreed to buy 15 percent of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Quicken Loans Arena, but because it is a minority stake in a healthy team with a star — LeBron James — and a relatively new arena, it raised little attention.

    Prokhorov is making deeper inroads.

    “The Russian is taking on a lot more risk for the potential of greater reward,” said Marc Ganis, president of Sportscorp, a Chicago-based sports consultant who helped Huang buy into the Cavaliers. “He’s getting a good deal on the team, but he’s taking on a great deal of risk with the arena and with debt.”

    Having a Russian owner also bolsters the N.B.A.’s grander ambitions overseas, where the league is trying to market its licensed goods and television rights, said Rob Tilliss, who helped Ratner buy the Nets before he founded Inner Circle Sports, which advises sports, media and entertainment companies.

    “Bud Selig has the World Baseball Classic, Roger Goodell wants a team in London, the National Hockey League is playing games in the Czech Republic and Scandinavia, and David Stern is in China,” he said. “This is another step in a natural progression.”

    One potential loser is the Knicks, whose owners at Cablevision are spending more than $500 million to refurbish Madison Square Garden. The team traded away its most expensive players to make it easier to pursue a big-name star like James when he becomes a free agent after next season.

    Prokhorov’s presence and cash might stoke a heated rivalry with the Knicks that might not have existed if the debt-laden Ratner still owned the Nets.”

    Do they change the name of the team to LeNets, LeBronets, etc. or will it be LeNicks?Cleveland still has a shot.But I wouldn’t make that bet for all the TsingTao in Ohio.

    • Typical NY centric point of view on the 2010 subject. But If I’m a betting man, which I aint, the Nets have a better shot at LeIcon, than the Knicks.

      Koolaid be dammed!
