Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov is known for spending so much money for his fabulous life. He currently owns the New Jersey Nets basketball team, the island called North Island, two planes and a large yacht.
Mikhail Prokhorov is the third richest man from Russia and the 39th richest man in the world according to the 2010 Forbes list with a fortune estimated at $18 billion as per the Forbes Billionaire List. Despite being a billionaire, Mikhail Prokhorov only works two hours a day, the rest time he plays boxing, skiing and going to bed around 3am. Like most Russian leading industrialists, the youthful and Internet-savvy Mr. Prokhorov made his fortune in raw materials. While he was running Norilsk Nickel, this company became the world's largest producer of nickel and palladium in the early 1990s. He is currently chairman of Polyus Gold, Russia's largest gold producer, and President of ONEXIM Group which has weathered the crisis well. He owns the NBA's New Jersey Nets basketball team. He was No. 2 in last year's rankings.
