New York media is obsessed by Mikhail Prokhorov. The Times alone has run six stories on him since the Nets news broke. There was the Page 1 news story, one comparing him to billionaire Mayor Bloomberg, another on how he fits into the NBA's "global outreach", a related piece on how he ran CSKA Moscow, a financial analysis of his bid and on Sunday, a feature (with artwork) on how Moscow is like Brooklyn.
