Nets Owner Mikhail Prokhorov Was Putting On a Show For The Ages at Practice (Videos)

If the Brooklyn Nets suddenly become contenders during this upcoming NBA season, it will probably have everything to do with Mikhail Prokhorov‘s dribbling drills, which were introduced to the team during Wednesday’s practice.

Here’s a drill where the Nets owner does push-ups with his hands and feet on basketballs:

And here he is doing a dribbling drill while in a push-up position with both feet on a basketball:

This is an example of what Mikhail Prokhorov is doing right now at Nets practice:

Think that’s easy?  It’s not.  Here’s a look at what happened when Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Markel Brown gave it a go:

The players aren’t quite as good:

Sure, these are Nets players we’re talking about, but I’m willing to bet that even good players on good teams would struggle with that.

Prokhorov also took a moment to dribble on a wall:

Will all of this make the Nets good this season? Probably not. But it sure is fun to watch.
