Mikhail Prokhorov

Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov owns the Brooklyn Nets, a team with some of the world's greatest athletes.

At Nets' training camp at Duke University, Prokhorov shows up the entire team -- players, coaches and media -- with his strength.

First, Prokhorov dribbles with his feet balancing on a basketball:

Then he does push-ups with four basketballs:

He does push-ups with a stick and a basketball:

And here are some dribbling tricks:

Prokhorov, 50, has a net worth of roughly $8.8 billion, so he pretty much does what he wants when he wants to do it.

Do parts of these videos seem like Soviet propaganda with all the attention and applause hailed Prokhorov's way? Maybe. But they are fun nonetheless.

Nets players tried to emulate Prokhorov, and for the most part, they embarrassed themselves in front of their employer.


The players aren't quite as good:

Jarrett Jack, entering his 11th NBA season, was doing so poorly Prokhorov had to step in and help.

YES Network sideline reporter Sarah Kustok, who played basketball for DePaul, managed to show a sense of balance:

Across the East River, Knicks fans are begging to see James Dolan try the same stunts just to see the wipeouts.
