Brooklyn Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov has spent a lot of money to turn the Nets into championship contenders. Now, he's expecting a return on his lofty investments.

According to a report in the New York PostProkhorov said he has done all he can do and it's now time for the team to do the rest. Prokhorov said he is "not a man of procedure" but a "man of results." After completing a blockbuster trade to acquire Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry from the Boston Celtics, Prokhorov said he will be proud once the Nets bring a championship to Brooklyn.

The Nets' payroll for the 2013-14 season is around $101 million with a $80 million luxury tax hit coming. Prokhorov said he is willing to invest more into the team to make Brooklyn the "best in the league."
