He's worth close to 10BB. Should be a good for the NBA. On fiscal terms, anyway. He's got a bigger than Cuban's, if he wants to swing it.

Good news for the Nets, I bet all-star Devin Harris is happy.

I guess the Thuggets wouldn't want to mess with him he'd get the Russian Mafia to take them out.

Latest news has this guy wanting to meet with Jay-Z. I don't think this is about Jay-Z increasing his stake in the Nets.
