James Dolan, owner of the Knicks, might be able to play a guitar but can he dribble a ball? No he can’t. But Mikhail Prokhorov, owner of the Nets sure can, see the video. It’s of Prokhorov taking over the Nets training camp workout and putting that great Russian bit of sports equipment, the volleyball, to use. If the Nets can’t dribble they won’t have their owner to blame.
It’s rather refreshing. The world of NBA owners is an exclusive one, populated of course by guys with megabucks, but it looks like Prokhorov may be the fittest among them. Dolan sports a comfortably rounded tummy. and the less said about some of the others the better.
The big question of course relates to Porkhorov’s motive in doing pushups while he balanced on volleyballs. Was he showing off or genuinely trying to open his players minds to new ways of doing strength training and practising dribbling? Or perhaps he was actually angling for a spot on the team? What do you think?
