After months of silence about his plans to purchase the team and a long period as an International Man of Mystery, potential new Grizzlies owner Robert Pera finally gave an exclusive interview to the (awkwardly-named) Silicon Valley / San Jose Business Journal.
In the interview, Pera talks about the falling stock price of his company, Ubiquiti Networks, about his reasons for wanting to purchase the Grizzlies:
When I was growing up, if I could do anything in the world I wanted to be a professional athlete. For a long time my dream was always to be in a position to maybe be involved in a NBA team.
Unfortunately for Grizzlies fans starved for any concrete information about Pera, the full article is here and requires a $60 digital subscription to the Silicon Valley / San Jose Business Journal to read – which only leaves we of Grizz Nation even more desperate to hear from Pera.
With any luck, he’ll give an interview to a publication that can actually reach fans of the Memphis Grizzlies. Given how private of a person Pera is, though, another interview right on the heels of this one seems unlikely. And so, we wait.
