The sale of the Nets became official yesterday—as did Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov's intention of being at the NBA lottery.

"This much-anticipated day has finally come and now the real fun beginning of building a championship team with a state-of-the-art home in the Barclays Center," said Prokhorov, who bought 80 percent of the Nets from developer Bruce Ratner.

"It's a wonderful opportunity to combine great sports and good business...To the fans, whether in New Jersey, Brooklyn, or Moscow, I will do everything I can to give you a winning team.

"See you at the Draft Lottery."

All eyes on John Wall right now. Wall has the size and physical tools to become an incredible...Not many players at his position have the combination of speed and athleticism that he possesses. At least once or twice a game he will make a brilliant play that shows the amount of potential that he has.

He is able to consistently finish above the rim, both in transition and in traffic. Wall has an extra gear which allows him to turn the corner or to explode by defenders in the open court. If the Nets draft John Wall, this might make LeBron James think about New Jersey Nets.

Jay-Z is good friend of King James. Plus, being minority owner of Nets is a bonus too. The Nets have two first round picks and one in the second round. Regardless of the city James plays in next year, regardless of the color of threads he dons, he'll continue to be the best player in the world.

All things seem in place for the Nets take the town again from the Knicks.
