. . . or at least his Twitter alter ego.
Today's post about Brook Lopez just may take the cake:
Please do not tell Magic of devastate new injury to Brooke Lopez. Is important for trade with Orlando superstar.— Mikhail Prokhorov (@Fake_Prokhorov) March 5, 2012
Lopez, who sprained his ankle in Sunday's win against Charlotte, is in a walking boot and expected to be out three weeks. That time frame includes the trade deadline; the Nets figure to be players in the Dwight Howard sweepstakes at the deadline, and Lopez would be one of the major players in the deal. So you can understand @Fake_Prokhorov's anguish.
It's not Friday, but the faux Prokhorov Twitter account is one of the fake basketball Twitter accounts worth following. Others include the verbose @NotBillWalton and the absurdly cocky @LeBronJamesEgo.
