What a fantastic lede from the New York Daily News this morning:â†µ
The Russian billionaire who is on the verge of funding the Nets’ long-awaited move to Brooklyn is a hard-partying bachelor who was arrested in 2007 on suspicion he was involved in an upscale prostitution ring.â†µ
Well, then. We touched on this story last week, and while nothing’s been made official, this bit of news certainly makes the story a lot more fun.â†µ
And hey, so what if he’s “hard partying” and involved in organized crime. He’ll help get the stadium built, right? It’s a recession, y’all. Gotta take the money wherever you can get it.
