Look for news about Dwight Howard and the Nets in an odd place next weekend. Russian media report that Howard and Andrei Kirilenko will be traveling to Moscow together June 11 -12 as part of a promotion by the NBA and Adidas. There will be a visit to a streetball competition, a tour of Red Square and a visit to the Adidas Store.
That Adidas stop is sure to raise media questions for Howard --and Kirilenko. At the Adidas Store, located in a big mall off Red Square, Howard should find a store-in-store devoted to Nets gear! It was opened by the Nets last October on their round-the-world trip. Howard is unlikely to have any contact with Nets ownership or management ...although NBA Russia does have close ties to the Nets.
