Brooklyn Nets visit Great Wall

Brooklyn Nets

The Great Wall extends across 15,000 miles of Chinese territory, from east to west, but one section is close enough to Beijing to hop on, and a group of Nets players did just that on Monday, their first day off since arriving in China.

The Nets posted images of five Nets -- Alan Anderson, Jarrett Jack, Jerome Jordan, Markel Brown and Andrei Kirilenko and video of the whole team -- climbing around the 26-foot high wall. The video of Kevin Garnett tobogganing is the high point. No word on whether Nets players visited the other big tourist sites in Beijing: the Great Hall of the People, the Forbidden City and Tianamen Square.

The Nets play again Wednesday morning, at 7:30 ET in Beijing's Master Card Center.  The game, again vs. the Kings, will be televised on NBA TV.
