If you ever meet a magic genie and are given the chance to switch lives with one other person on the planet, you probably won’t regret picking Mikhail Prokhorov. Mikhail Prokhorov is a self-made Russian billionaire playboy who is perhaps most famous in the western world for being the owner of the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets from 2013 to 2019. Earlier today it was announced that Mikhail had agreed to sell The Nets to Chinese billionaire Joseph Tsai at a valuation of $2.35 billion. Tsai had already bought 49% of The Nets back in 2017 for $1 billion
Outside of the pro sports, Mikhail has used his massive bank account to build a dream life that includes super model girlfriends, mansions around the world, two mega-yachts, an ultra-luxurious private jet and even a semi-successful political career. He is essentially, the ultimate billionaire playboy. And to think, none of it would have been possible without the help of a private jet full of prostitutes and a debaucherous New Years party that landed Prokhorov in a French jail back in 2007. Wait…what??!!
As of this writing, Mikhail Prokhorov’s $11 billion net worth is enough to make him the 9th richest person in Russia and the 70th richest person in the world. However, unlike most billionaires, the majority of Mikhails’ net worth is made up of cash and other very liquid assets.
Prokhorov’s business career dates back to 1989 when he graduated from the Moscow Finance Institute. He spent the next three years rising to the top of a handful of Russian banks, ultimately peaking as the President of United Export-Import Bank (also known as Onexim Bank). While running Onexim Bank, Prokhorov was introduced to his future business partner Vladimir Potanin.
