You can add this to the growing legend of the owner of the New Jersey Nets.
Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov is spending this week living the high life in the French Alpine resort of Courchevel. The Nets owner arrived in France's resort with a group containing not one or two but 24 hangers-on who arrived via a fleet of six helicopters, according to the New York Post.
But that's nothing. Remember this is a man with a net worth of $18 billion according to Forbes.
After his security staff couldn't find any local restaurants with private rooms, Prokhorov, a bachelor, decided to fly in Wout Bru, the top celebrity chef in Europe, to personally serve him while on vacation. Bru, star of Europe's cooking challenge show "MasterChef," is reported to have made the NBA owner's favorite meal -- a crispy pork dish that is said to take a full 24 hours to prepare.
The Courchevel valley was host to the 1992 Winter Olympics, and it's also home to the world's seventh most dangerous airport, with the shortest runways in the globe at just 1,722 feet.Full Story >>
