08:54 AM ET 01.21 | Mikhail Prokhorov's political bid is still considered a longshot, and Nets fans better hope it stays that way if they want any ownership presence. Even if he doesn't win the Russian presidential election in March - when Prokhorov plans to run against Vladimir Putin - the billionaire told Reuters this week that he would "sell my shares (of the Nets) to a blind trust' should he become prime minister or, as phrased by the reporter, "if (his) political career is hugely successful." Giving his shares to a blind trust doesn't mean Prokhorov would relinquish his investment, just that trustees would be given full discretion over the Nets' assets.
