Dwight Shimmies with Nets Dancers! Does That Mean Anything at All?!?

No indication Mikhail Prokhorov dropped by to make small (or big) talk with Dwight Howard.  Nor did we see Brett Yormark, in Moscow to seek Russian sponsors for Barclays Center, hand out Power Points offering D-12 the world if only he would join the Nets.

But the top defensive player in the NBA and the Big Apple of the Nets' eye did get down with the Nets Dancers for a few seconds at Luzhniki Stadium during the NBA 5 United Tour 2011 in Moscow Saturday. Howard and Andrei Kirilenko are  headliners for the event, which will run two days.

"Russia has always attracted me and so I'm happy to be in Moscow," the Magic center told Soviet Sports. "I was on the tour, looked at the Kremlin, strolled through Red Square. But the main thing - it's still basketball. I was glad to participate in the contest Slam-Dunk-Off together with the Moscow boys. In Russia, you have  a great basketball culture. How else could your country give birth to such a talent as Kirilenko?"
