'The Russian Is Coming': Mikhail Prokhorov Featured On '60 Minutes' Sunday

Consider this a friendly programming reminder: you'd be wise to tune into Sunday's edition of "60 Minutes." Not only does it feature Anderson Cooper joining a guy known as "The Sharkman" for an unprotected dive with great white sharks (!), but it also features Mikhail Prokhorov, a Russian billionaire who is set to become the new owner of the New Jersey Nets. In the piece, which is appropriately called, "The Russian Is Coming," the news magazine will "[discuss] his planned purchase of the Nets, his vast wealth and the surprisingly unusual way he made most of his money."

Still not convinced? Remember, this is Mikhail Prokhorov:

↵
    ↵
  • His favorite sports include kick-boxing, freestyle jet skiing, windsurfing, acrobatics and trampoline. I don't even know what "freestyle jet skiing" is.
  • ↵
  • Last fall, he spent $19,000 ... on a lunch.
  • ↵
  • He invested in an acid-wash jeans company.
  • ↵
  • Prokhorov once married a woman only to divorce her a week later, just to win a childhood bet.
  • ↵

So, again: Sunday night, CBS, 7 p.m. ET.
