BROOKLYN ? Mikhail Prokhorov has spared no expense in his attempt to deliver a championship to Brooklyn. Prokhorov has invested an estimated $319 million in guaranteed player contracts through the 2015-16 season.?Such a spending spree is possible when you?re ranked the 57th richest man in the world according to Forbes at an estimated $13.2 billion.

After spending a lucrative amount to upgrade the roster, Prokhorov has reportedly targeted Phil Jackson as the Nets next head coach if P.J. Carlesimo fails to get the job done on an interim basis.

"This new borough battle already got good at the money level when towering Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov referred to Knicks owner James Dolan as "that little man" in?New York Magazine. Tyson Chandler and Carmelo Anthony dismissed the Nets as a budding rival but it is hard to ignore what is going on across the East River."

It seems as though the rest of the NBA Community has taken notice of what the Brooklyn Nets have built this offseason. With perennial playoff teams like the Orlango Magic and Atlanta Hawks taking a major step back and Derrick Rose expected to miss at least the first half of the season, it's hard to imagine the Nets NOT making the playoffs this season.
