Prokhorov: Chris Rock should play me

Those crazy Russian oligarchs. They are such jokesters. Mikhail Prokhorov, the absurdly wealthy owner of the Brooklyn Nets, is an interesting fellow. He famously declared two years ago that the Nets would win and NBA title within five years, and despite bolstering the roster by adding Joe Johnson to a core of Deron Williams, Brook Lopez and Gerald Wallace during the offseason, the...
