Would Prokhorov Keep the Nets in Jersey? ESPN Writers Disagree

Is Mikhail Prokhorov so enamored of the Nets that he'd keep them in New Jersey if Brooklyn fails? He says no. Bruce Ratner says no. David Stern says no. Two ESPN writers have different takes: Marc Stein quotes a source saying "he apparently wants to take over even if the franchise can't extricate itself from New Jersey". Ric Bucher says an NBA source told him "without the arena, Prokhorov's interest fades".
