After helping Russia win the bronze medal at the London Olympics, Mozgov was slated to...
Seeing as Lionel Messi and Nate Robinson, are probably the two most athletic oompa loompas in professional sports, this actually makes some sense.
In the past Robinson has gone with the single digit jersey numbers, but seeing as his preferred No.2 has been retired by the Denver Nuggets in honor of Alex English, he has opted to show some love to the 5-7 Barcelona forward, who many...
