Brooklyn Nets Attempt Russian Outreach

Brook Lopez RussianWhile Jay Z has gotten most of the attention as the owner of the Brooklyn Nets, the team is actually majority-owned by Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov. Under his guidance, and with help from Barclay Center TV’s Alyonka Larionov, the team is attempting to reach out to the Russian community. In this video cut before Sunday’s Russian Outreach Night, players including Brook Lopez and MarShon Brooks get quizzed on everything from the language to geography. Our favorite part is Tyshawn Taylor flailing for answers while teammate Tornike Shengelia (who speaks it fluently) stands right next to him.
