What is MarShon Brooks doing in Russia just weeks before the start of training camp? Fred Kerber of New York Post can tell you all about it:
A young, outgoing NBA player traveling to Russia with his agent will receive a guided tour of Moscow from one of the world’s most eligible and wealthiest bachelors.
Sounds like a comedy movie script, but it is part of what awaits the Nets’ MarShon Brooks when he leaves Tuesday to participate in the NBA-sponsored Basketball Without Borders Europe, which goes to Russia for the first time this week.
The NBA, FIBA and Russian Basketball Federation have lined up current and former NBA players plus Russian legends for the Sept. 13-16 event, which features a camp for 50 of the top European prospects, hailing from more than 25 countries.
Sounds like a good time coming for the second-year guard. While we’re on the subject, be sure to check up on the latest transactions of the Nets in hopes to be an even stronger team than they’ve already become.
