Remember that Moscow tour Dwight Howard and Andrei Kirilenko are going on this weekend? The one that raised fears in Orlando that D-12 would be lured into defecting by Mikhail Prokhorov? No word on whether the owner will show at the NBA event, but some "Nets" will be on hand. The Nets Dancers will perform at each stop.
There'll be a visit to a streetball competition, a tour of Red Square and a visit to the Adidas Store. That Adidas stop is likely to get interesting. Within the Adidas Store, located in a big mall off Red Square, Howard and Kirilenko should find a lot of Nets gear. Team members opened the store-in-store last October. Also in Moscow this weekend: Brett Yormark. He's not planning to attend, said a team official.
Meanwhile, Stefan Bondy tweets that Howard's big man coach, Patrick Ewing, would only go so far in talking about the Magic center's return: "Ewing says, 'he better come back.' But stopped short of saying that's what Dwight wants to do."
