Prokhorov Commends "Comrade" Cuban, J-Kidd on Mavericks Title

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.

Dear Mark:

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.

Warm regards,

your friend and comrade,
