Mikhail Prokhorov MS 10222.JPG


Russian billionaire playboy Mikhail Prokhorov met with NBA owners yesterday as he continues his efforts to buy the New Jersey Nets.

The meeting must have gone well. The New York Post is reporting that Prokhorov was in such a good mood, following the meeting, that he took a group of friends to lunch to “celebrate.” The Post says the lunch cost $19,000.

Prokhorov’s lunch tab was reportedly $15,007.87 (including a $5,000 bottle of wine.) He left a $3,750 tip.

The Post speculates that Prokhorov will be in place as Nets owner by January.
