Mikhail Prokhorov is a confident man.
Also, an insanely rich man. Combine those two and you get a guy that says everything a Nets fan could hope to hear in a low-tech video message to Nets fans just released. Prokhorov promises a truly international team that will make the playoffs next year and win a title within five years.
Apparently he plans on winning the NBA Draft Lottery tonight.
Prokorov may be underestimating how hard it is to win the NBA title (just ask Mark Cuban). Or, maybe I am underestimating Prokorov. But you have to like how straight forward he is.
