Brooklyn Nets to dominate Turkish League All-Star Game Sunday

Brooklyn Nets

When the Turkish League All-Star Game takes place at Fenerbahce arena in Istanbul Sunday, there will be a decidedly Nets feel to the occasion. The annual classic features the best of the league's foreign stars vs. the local Turkish stars. Rosters were announced Tuesday in Istanbul.

Former Nets Jordan Farmar and Sasha Vujacic, who are once again teammates with Efes Anadolu, have been selected for the foreign all-stars as has Bojan Bogdanovic, the Nets second round pick in 2011. Bogdanovic, a 6'8" swingman plays for Fener. Ilkan Karaman, the 2012 second round pick, will play for the Turkish all-stars. The 6' 9.5" Karaman, who plays with Bogdanovic at Fener, will also compete in the weekend's Slam Dunk contest.

Entertainment for the event will be provided by the Brooklynettes, described as "breathtakingly beautiful" in the TBL press release, and BrooklyKnight, the Nets new mascot. It will be the international debut of the Knight. The Brooklynettes performed in Brazil last summer. With the Nets on a four-game road swing after Friday night, the mascot and dance team are free to travel. The Nets have targeted Turkey in their globaliztion efforts, along with China and Russia.
