    He bought an American professional basketball team, the Nets and is making a pretty big splash in the media in the US. Seems like a good guy.

    I read the Wiki on him and a bunch of stuff on ESPN.com etc... interested in the thoughts of fellow countrymen.

    Interesting... the Nets have all male cheerleaders. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

    He is a Russian oligarch... got rich the same way as the rest of them did (cough, Abramovich) during the USSR restructuring into Russia.

    What happened in those times was basically massive privatization of everything that was owned by the government for free or dirt cheap - buildings, factories, etc.

    For example, Abramovich bought one of the biggest steel factories in the world for $100,000.... smaller things such as appartment buildings were given away for free to "friends" and "family"

    Most of these people are not really Russian... majority of them were born and grew up in US (including Abramovich) which is why they don't speak Russian well, and all of them have a major accent.

    It's just a very small and closed circle of a couple families raping the whole population of Russia... they go around buying massive sports teams - while teachers, janitors, and engineers working in Russia get paid equally nothing

    I'm not joking either... it might sound absurd to some, but it's reality. I remember when my grandparents were getting paid in loafts of bread... while teacher's salaries would be 6 months behind... a lot more to say, but no point :)
