Brooklyn Nets billionaire owner Mikhail Prokhorov is an eccentric dude and one hell of an interview. The New York Post’s Steve Serby was able to corral the white whale for a Q & A recently, and the Russian didn’t disappoint.
The man who bosses around Jay-Z has a five-year plan, and while it doesn’t make the most sense, it’s extremely entertaining.
Q: Why are women so hard to figure out?
A: Who’s trying to figure them out? I think we just need to love them.
Q: Describe your ideal mate.
A: Beautiful, smart, sexy and makes a mean bowl of borscht.
Q: Is marriage something you would consider some day?
A: I have said that if the Nets don’t win the NBA championship within five years, I will punish myself by getting married. We are in year three. So no one is more interested in winning a championship than yours truly.
There you have it, Nets. The pressure to win is on. Otherwise, Prokhorov is going to make some Eastern European gold digger very, very, happy.
