OT: Simmons' Guide to Mikhail Prokhorov

Submitted by MGoViso on May 22nd, 2010 at 12:24 PM

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.

tl;dr: "most awkward breakfast of all time"
