Mikhail Prokhorov Is A Cartoon Character

The guy who owns the Nets and isn't Jay-Z sat down for a lengthy Q&A with the Post. He is every bit the caricature the internet has made him out to be. A sample:

Is marriage something you would consider some day?

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.

Since you always aim high, will you pursue LeBron James again, and what do you think your chances will be of bringing him to Brooklyn?

Ha ha ha. You know NBA rules forbid me from speaking about another team's player! I've been an owner for over two years now, and I know the manual cover-to-cover.

People you haven't met and would like to meet?

This person called Honey Boo Boo is at the top of my list at the moment. From Moscow it looks as though the US has lost its collective mind on that.

Go read the whole thing.
