Toko Shengelia, a pro since 14, talks about the Brooklyn Nets togetherness

In his "In-Bounds" interview with Alyonka Larionov, Toko Shengelia talks about the biggest shock he had on joining the NBA: his team's togetherness. That's not the way it was in Europe, where he's played professional since age 14.

"The whole team is really together, everybody with everybody," the 21-year-old told BCTV's host. "It was surprising to me. Before I came here, I didn't think like that because I had experiences with teams [that were] not really like friendly. There'd be thee guys together, four guys together. But here, all of us is together. So I have good relationships with everybody."

Shengelia showed off his language skills, reciting "Hello Brooklyn" in Georgian, Spanish, Russian and English. He and Mirza Teletovic, a native Serbo-Croatian speaker, regularly converse in Spanish.

The native of Georgia's capital, Tbilisi, also talked about missing home that when he feels the need, he's found three or four Georgia restaurants in Brooklyn. Of course.
