Mikhail Prokhorov’s Stunning Office

by April 27, 2010

Dude sure does have nice digs to do his work in. And his co-worker isn’t hard on the eyes either, ahem. From the NY Times: “Mikhail D. Prokhorov has a net worth of $17.8 billion, enough to buy every team in the National Basketball Association, stock them with All-Stars and take them on a world tour aboard his 200-foot yacht … In the N.B.A., which has a salary cap and myriad restrictions on player movement, wealth does not ensure success. No one wins merely by outspending the competition and purchasing the best players, as CSKA Moscow did under Prokhorov’s stewardship. But a clever, charismatic owner can make an impact outside of those restrictions. ‘If Mikhail’s personality matches his wallet and he is available to Nets fans, they will love him and come to the games in droves,’ the Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said in an e-mail message. If there is an owner’s guide for fusing passion and prosperity, Cuban wrote it.”
