What do most international players do with their summers? Nikola Olic of Hoopsworld notes that it's not all about playing in FIBA tournaments, that for the most part, it's about rest and reconnecting with the local culture. Nenad Krstic is typical in that he spends as much time as he can--four months--in his native Serbia, taking in things like the Gypsy Trumpet Festival in Guca. Olic also notes that the Nets' European contingent live near each other in New Jersey.
