A lot of people don't understand how powerl Mikail Prokhorov is. He is the new kid on the block who is by far the richest owner in the NBA. He makes the Buss family seems like middle class owners. I was reading up on this guy and how he got his riches in Russia and I began to think this guy will do something huge in the NBA soon. He is in his kind of rookie year ownership and feeling the waters here and there but we are just waiting on a huge splash from this guy. Do you seriously believe that Prokhorov willing to sit at his 5 trillion dollar mansion in Russia trying to make the Nets like expansion team? What do you guys think of him persuing Phil Jackson even though Phil is currently "working" for the Pistons as an "advisor" a title that doesn't mean crap really. And Don't be surprised if he try to get D12 and CP3 on his team. Now you guys probably be like "no way because of salary cap". Sounds good but this guy is willing to go way over the luxury tax to do so. Luxury tax to him is like a night out at a club. This guy is rediculously rich. And his mafia mentality can get it done. Don't be surprised if D12 and Cp3 leave LA to go to Brooklyn. And I know this could be a stretch but what makes you think Mikail wont persue Lebron? This guy history is get what he wants and money is not an issue. Luxury tax? Who cares with this guy. No way the Buss family will hang with this kat.
Imagine D12, CP3 and Lebron. NBA will fine Mikail if that happens but he probably doesn't care eaither.
