Andrei Kirilenko is healthy and 'surprised' he didn't play in game one

Andrei Kirilenko, also known as "plan A+" when he was acquired by the Nets this offseason for the mini-midlevel exception, didn't get off to a great start in his first postseason game with Brooklyn. By a poor start, he didn't get in. Kirilenko was glued to the bench in the Nets 94-87 game one win over the Raptors in Toronto which led to him saying he was "a little bit surprised" about not playing. Kirilenko, though, said he wasn't upset about coach Jason Kidd's call. "When I watched the game everybody played so well," Kirilenko told writers at the PNY Center, "I didn't even see a position...

Kirilenko 'a little bit suprised' about DNP

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Brooklyn Nets forward Andrei Kirilenko said he was “a little bit surprised” that he did not play in Game 1 on Saturday. But Kirilenko, who reiterated that he is healthy, was understanding of coach Jason Kidd’s decision to sit him. “I was a little bit surprised. But to be honest, when I watched the game everybody played so well,” Kirilenko told ESPNNewYork.com on Sunday. “I didn’t even see a position for me to fill-in because Terrence Ross obviously got two quick fouls, [DeMar] DeRozan didn’t have a great game and they played a small lineup with Kyle...

Brooklyn Nets big game pedigree - they've drunk a lot of champagne

It's one thing to count up post-season games for Nets players. It's another to add up their championships.  We looked at the Nets 15 players big game experience, that is their accomplishments: the titles they've won.

Andrei Kirilenko to open up Russia's first Hooters

Congratulations to Brooklyn Nets forward Andrei Kirilenko, who at the end of this month will open Russia's first ever Hooters restaurant. It will be one of five restaurants he will build and open in Russia under an agreement he has signed with Hooters of America Inc. I know what you're thinking? "Russia doesn't have a Hooters? But, the wings are so good!" Well, as of April 28 they will have their first taste of said wings. However, it won't be without a little bit of controversy. As the Sydney Morning Harold notes, Russia is not too keen on having U.S. brands open up shop in their country....

The Downbeat #1322: The Bad City Edition

Utah is still a city, this season's sordidness, FanPosts, paintings, and more. So, a game happened last night, I guess? It's hard to keep track at this point.

It's safe to say that Utah isn't his favorite place; he notoriously once said that "Utah is a bad city," which is wrong on a few different levels. And players like Andrei Kirilenko...
