Prokhorov is sixth biggest spender in pro sports

When Mikhail Prokhorov bought the Nets, he thought he could model them after European soccer clubs, many of them owned by sheiks and oligarchs who like him are willing to spend. Well, in one way, it's certainly worked out that way: in spending.

Bogdanovic's team heads into deep, comic spiral

Power Rankings: Are Pacers better than Nets?
