Prokhorov Meets President Obama

The Nets have released a White House photo of President Barack Obama and Mikhail Prokhorov during last week's Russian-American summit in Washington.  According to the Nets, the President invited Mikhail to a game of basketball, but added "I want you on my team...I wouldn't want to play against you!"

Prokhorov was part of a delegation of Russian businessmen that accompanied Russian President Dmitry Medvedev to the US on June 24th. Later that day, Prokhorov joined the Nets front office staff at the NBA Draft.
