Don't ya just love billionaire humor? Mikhail Prokhorov offered his "friend and comrade" his hearty congratulations Tuesday on the Mavericks' defeat of the Heat...and took a bit of a jab at the only other NBA owner who can scream not just in English but Russian.
My heartiest congratulations on winning the NBA championship. You showed the world not only what a great team you have, but also, that you can remain silent for a period of weeks--I don't know which is more shocking! To you and all of the Mavericks, especially former Nets captain Jason Kidd, great job! It was a stunning Finals series, truly one for the history books.
your friend and comrade,
