Obviously, he'll get extra perks in Russia from his Russian Nets owner... hence why he took "less" money on paper.

Wow. So he left behind $7 million and a starting job to come off the bench for the mini-MLE on the Nets.

Yup. Definite Russian mob connection going on.

Nets on paper looking good. I just find the coach disturbing. Now this is a team Rivers, Pop or Thibs could get to the Finals easily - barring injury.

Definitely a half court team. Not a high scoring team although I could see them blowing some teams out.

Evans won't be a third string player. Blatche will be our back-up center. Plumlee won't see any PT this season.

The Nets are championship favorites. Just give it to them now. Livingston, Terry, AK47, Evans and Blatche as your bench?!? Too deep of a team.

I'm sorry, but Prokhorov is obviously paying Kirilenko on the side, and this should probably be investigated.

And Kirilenko didn't leave anything. Prokohorov and him are taking care of the $$$$$$ back home in Russia.

This. And considering dude opted out of a guaranteed 10 million, and was trying to work a sign and trade with the Spurs? Shit is fishy as hell.
