In a letter to the editor of USA Today, Mikhail Prokhorov defends LeBron James' decision to join Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh on a super team in Miami.
Yes, you read that right.
The Nets owner is clear he hoped to sign James, but writes, "I respect their choice, and no one has the right to judge them. I want to say that I support LeBron, the best athlete in the NBA. He had a truly difficult choice to make."
It doesn't end there.
"I wish them success and give them my moral support," he concludes. "I will be happy for us to beat the Miami Heat in the conference finals, maybe not this season, but in the very near future."
