Jay-Z sits down to dinner and discussion with billionaires Mikhail Prokorov and Michael Bloomberg about the future of The Nets. Prokorov, weighing in at a hefty $13.4 billion net worth, reveals of himself and Jay-Z, weighing in at a dwarfed $150 million, the following: “We are soul mates, Iโ€™m looking forward to hanging out with him”.

Turns out, The Nets’ date to debut in the 2012 season in the new hometown of Brooklyn may prove to be a productive move. The new majority owner of The Nets hints towards some tricks up his sleeve to bring fortune back to the 12-70 team.

According to the New York Daily News, “Prokhorov promised to turn the Nets into a global brand and said moving the team to Brooklyn will help him achieve that dream” .

With free agents LeBron James and Dwyane Wade in the market, Prokhorov may intend genuinely when he plans to make the new arena a center for players all over the NBA, and ultimately the world.

“Brooklyn is home for everyone from everywhere” -Prokhorov
