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, I’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
