There are eccentric billionaires… And then there’s an eccentric billionaire who shows up at his NBA team’s practice for the first time in like three years, sits his world class athletes down like seven-year-old campers, and proceeds to show off the unorthodox dribbling drills he’s been working on.

I mean that was the most insane thing I’ve ever seen. Even Steve Ballmer thought that was preposterous. And I couldn’t stop laughing the entire time. I mean think about it for a second. Prokhorov, who has been an absolute ghost for three years now and seemingly wants to sell the Nets, basically just showed up out of the blue to put on what can only be described as a Basketball Magic Show for his multimillionaire employees. He just looked at Brook Lopez and Joe Johnson and the rest of that garbage Nets roster and said “sit down, watch my dribble skill. It good for core,” like he was gonna teach these guys a thing or two about ball handling. And they all had to sit there and listen because he writes their checks. I mean he’s basically Gob putting on a magic show at a Bluth Company outing.


And that all goes without mentioning the absurd move of bringing his own basketball/volleyball hybrid balls straight from Moscow. Why use any of the hundreds of basketballs readily available at that old NBA Practice Facility you own when you can bring your own? Who knows, maybe he just had them specially made to fit his routine, and he can only pull it off with those specific balls. I guess we’ll never know the answer to that though… a magician never reveals his secrets.
