It’s not often that we get to talk about Russian revolution Vladimir Lenin on this website but when his spirit is invoked by current Brooklyn Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov, it needs to be known why.
Recently, Mikhail spoke with Yes Network’s Sarah Kustok about his team’s current state and she asked him where he came up with the five-year championship plan which is how Mr. Lenin gets brought into it:
SK: Why did you put a five year timetable on it when you first got here?
MP: You know, it was based on the Five Year Plan of Vladimir Lenin. But, it didn’t work good in the Soviet economy, and I hope it will work much better here.
Hopefully, it does….
