If you follow NBA news, you know that Mikhail Prokhorov is the majority owner of the Nets, but you probably haven’t seen the shenanigans he pulled when he showed up to the team’s training camp Wednesday. Seriously, how has this guy not played a Bond Russian-super-villain yet? Today we talk about the aging superstars of a bygone era, and how they have had to adapt to survive.
