By night three, Hov was hitting his stride. He stopped during his set to address a rumor about his ownership of the Nets. There has been word that he only owes about one-fifteenth of one percent, a very small stake compared to Russian billionaire owner Mikhail Prokohorov. In his speech, he reminded the crowd to not “let anybody diminish your accomplishments.”

He added, “When I look at the paper and I see them talking, ‘Eh, he owns one-fifteenth.’ First of all, I don’t know where they get that number from. But I’m cool with it. I know it’s not about me, it’s about ya’ll. What I mean by that is it’s not personal to me. They know that if you see me standing here that you know it’s possible to achieve great things.”
