Mikhail Prokhorov arrives in New York Monday. The Russian billionaire has already had aides talk with Rod Thorn and on Friday sent two of them to watch the Nets. One was his London-based attorney, the other an unidentified basketball type. Prokhorov is expected to meet with the media, the team and the NBA Board of Governors. He may even take in Wednesday's game vs. the Knicks. Just how much does he matter?
