Mikhail Prokhorov Rumors
The players did their best to keep up, and by the end some were spending time with Prokhorov getting some additional instruction. “That was cool,” Jarrett Jack said. “It was my first time meeting him in person, but for him to come out and show he’s a guy that actually tries to better himself, health-wise, that’s pretty cool. He’s works in a different realm, definitely, than we usually do. “It was clear to see that it looks like it’s easy, but it definitely isn’t. It’s clear he’s put some time in, and he’s competitive, too.”
Mikhail Prokhorov is done talking about Deron Williams. After putting on an impromptu workout with his players Wednesday at their training camp at Duke University, Prokhorov conducted his first interview since the Nets parted ways with the former face of their franchise in July. But Prokhorov had no interest in discussing it, instead taking the opportunity to praise Jarrett Jack – Williams’ replacement as the Nets’ starting point guard. “I will say in that way that we have a great leader at point guard in Jarrett Jack,” Prokhorov said. “All the league knows what Jarrett is about.” Prokhorov then added, “I will say that I discussed all the player moves with Billy, and I signed off on all of them.” He then declined any further comment on Williams, who joined the Mavericks after taking a buyout.
The Brooklyn Nets are at Duke University for a preseason training camp this week, and owner Mikhail Prokhorov joined the team in Durham to show off some amazing exercise tricks. Prokhorov did a set of pushups while balancing on four basketballs before dribbling two basketballs off the wall simultaneously.
