Prokhorov Zings the Knicks

So what do the Nets think of that MSG Knicks commercial in which a narrator explains, "Hey Nets, you can walk like us, you can talk like us, but you ain't never gonna be like us"? Well, they had two responses, actually. First, via Neil Best, here's Nets CEO Brett Yormark: "It was a tune-in message to drive viewership to the game, which I think is a good thing. As far as I can see, the Knicks seem to be spending a lot of time thinking about us lately, which is fine." Kinda boring, right? Now, via the Post, here's owner Mikhail Prokhorov's statement on the matter: "I don't think we want to be like the Knicks. I think we'd more like to resemble the Lakers." Zing! The Knicks and Nets, by the way, play each other tonight at the Garden. [Newsday, NYP] Update: The Nets passed along another, more quotable Yormark line, from the Bergen Record: "The Knicks seem to be spending a lot of time thinking about us lately. They must have seen the steel rise at the Barclays Center last week." Your move now, Dolan.
