Avery: LeBron's Questions Were Mainly About Basketball

For all the talk about how Mikhail Prokhorov and Jay-Z stole the show Thursday, Avery Johnson says LeBron James asked "maybe one question" of the owner. He spent most of the Q and A asking the coach questions...about basketball, how the Nets would utilize his talents.

"Mainly me. And maybe one question for the owner if I can remember," Johnson told the Post's Steve Serby. Johnson said James seemed happy with his answers. "Oh yeah, he was thrilled. There was no gray area. Everybody was happy with my answers -- our guys and their guys. Got a big, big applause...without the clapping."

In the presentation, Prokhorov talked about the Nets' global plans, while Jay-Z spoke of Brooklyn as a microcosm of America.
