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. No, actually, the Jazz played decently in the fourth quarter, making a run to keep the game close(ish) before Dirk Nowitzki did Dirk Nowitzki things to shut the door (passing Oscar Rob Dirk has actually had a pretty interesting history against the Jazz. 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...

Kragthorpe: Utah Jazz threatening this century’s low point

As the Jazz play the last 10 games of one of the worst seasons in the 40-year franchise history, I’m intrigued by the comparison to 2004-05, the team’s other horrible season of this century. What’s similar: The market’s apparent acceptance of the poor performance, on a one-time basis. What’s different: The market’s apparent insistence that the Jazz’s record becomes as bad as possible. Mostly because of injuries to Andrei Kirilenko and other players and a midseason trade of point guard Carlos Arr...

Injury update: Andrei Kirilenko has a bruised left big toe

Andrei Kirilenko did not practice on Tuesday for the Brooklyn because of a bruised left big toe. Andrei Kirilenko had a bruised left big toe and missed today's practice. — Andy Vasquez (@andy_vasquez) March 18, 2014 That's about the extent of the report. With the Nets playing five times in eight nights and Kevin Garnett (back spasms) already ailing, it would strike me that this is a bit precautionary. There is no indication that Kirilenko will not play on Wednesday against the Bobcats.
