I don’t care what any of you say, but Mikhail Prokhorov was definitely an enemy of Jack Bauer (24 Reference).

The only reason I believe the soon to be Brooklyn Nets will be successful is because of Prokhorov, here are the details of his venture into politics.

Mikhail Prokhorov will run for President of Russia in a direct challenge to Vladimir Putin. The election is in March. The Nets principal owner told a press conference Monday afternoon that “I have made a decision. I am taking part in the presidential elections.” He’s running as an independent.

Prokhorov also told a news conference that he had not asked for the Kremlin’s permission, nor had he spoken with Putin or current Russian president Dmitry Medvedev about his intentions. Moscow has been racked by massive demonstrations since last weekend’s parliamentary elections in which Putin and Medvedev’s party barely held on to its majority.

I would vote him, but I think if he won he would take over the world by 2015.
