    Russia's richest man reaches deal to buy controlling interest in the Nets and a big chunk of the Brooklyn arena project.

    Well played.

    If you had told someone in 1979 that a Russian would own a US professional basketball team in 2009, they would have looked at you like you had two heads. Or one eye. Or both.

    The Nyets line made me laugh, Inky.

    Someone finish it. All I have is, "...you go to America to buy the Nets." Not good, I know.

    This is the official end of Bruce Ratner's Brooklyn arena pipedream, despite what David Stern thinks.
    No way that place is ever getting built.
