"What (Michigan coaches) told me is that they're focusing on point guards right now, but if anything opens up, they'll definitely come back on and recruit me as hard as they were," said Towns
Yesterday Bill Simmons published an idiot's guide to new Nets owner (and 6'8" Russian playboy billionaire) Mikhail Prokhorov.
It's a pretty good Simmons piece (nice balance of wit and info), and Prokhorov really is an interesting guy. The Sports Guy makes his usual run of overly specific predictions on how this guy will pan out, and among them was one I found genuinely intriguing: the possibility that Prokhorov gives Phil Jackson an offer he can't refuse this summer, with the Lakers supposedly asking the greatest NBA coach of all time to take over a 50% cut. Bill speculates $85 million for five years.
