Mikhail Prokhorov Trains His Brooklyn Nets Team

Earlier this week, Eccentric Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov and Brooklyn Nets owner wanted to spend some quality time with his team. So he dropped by for a practice — and lead his squad in some weird drills.

“I think my preference was to come personally, and to say hello to the players and to the coaches,” said Prokhorov, who was making his first stateside visit to training camp since buying the team in May 2010. “I think it’s very important for the new team to have special team building, and of course the commitment of ownership as part of the team.
“But I also wanted to share with them my own experience with martial arts, and I really will be happy if it helps them in some way.”
