The Nets posted a gallery of Lionel Hollins and Billy King participating in the first of several events this week in the league's African debut.  Hollins, who's on his fifth trip to Africa and second in two years, and King were part of the instructional staff at Basketball Without Borders in Johannesburg Wednesday.

On Saturday, the two will also participate in the first NBA game on the continent, an all-Star game between Team World, coached by Hollins, and Team Africa, whose GM's are King and Masai Ujiri of Toronto.  The game will be broadcast live on ESPN Saturday morning.
