Found October 19, 2011 on Pro Basketball Talk:
  I’m guessing that this was hosted by Kirilenko’s new Russian team, which would honestly make me look at the Heat’s “welcome party” from last off-season in an entirely new light. (I’m not sure if I would like it more, I’d just think of it differently.) If Kirilenko’s giant World of Warcraft back tattoo had…

When I Dance They Call Me Kirilenko

CSKA Moscow, Andrei Kirilenko's new professional team in Russia, had its Media Day recently. Naturally, this involved the players breaking into three groups and dancing to Muzak and outdated pop songs on a stage in a giant banquet hall somewhere in Moscow. More »

Kirilenko Brings The Macarena Back

Based on this video of Andrei Kirilenko and Nenad Krstic doing the Macarena which was last seen dead in the north america dance grave beside the Lambada. In the year 2082, the “Dougie” will still be kicking @ss and taking names in Russia. Isn’t that great news Cali Swag District? H/N TBJ + Monilogue

Andrei Kirilenko, Nenad Krstic & Friends Do The Macarena

I have no clue exactly why Andrei Kirilenko, Nenad Krstic and that cat who looks to be former NBA player Viktor Khryapa are dancing on stage. But skip to the 1:06 mark if you want to A) get sent into a time machine and B) laugh. Or you can just watch the two ladies in [...]

Video: Andrei Kirilenko, Nenad Krstic Do the Macarena Dance

In Russia, the Macarena is apparently still a thing, and the video above shows Andrei Kirilenko and Nenad Krstic dancing to it. Poorly and hilariously. (H/T: TBJ)

Deron Williams, blogging from Turkey

Can't remember him ever to be that communicative from Utah or New Jersey. But now that he's in Istanbul, Deron Williams has tapped into his inner Hemingway on a new website: I made the choice early and just went all in. My wife kind of sold me on it rather than me selling her on it. She loves to travel and she wants to go to as many places as we can. She thought it would...

14 mayors write letter to NBA owners and players urging end to lockout

Like many of the people he serves, Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker is a huge Utah Jazz fan. He attends a few games each year. He TIVOs and watches most Jazz telecasts, and is a daily follower of the franchise for six-plus months a year. And, yes, he wants the NBA lockout to be over. That’s why [...]

Andrei Kirilenko And Nenad Krstic Dance It Out In Russia (Video)

Previously on That NBA Lottery Pick, we mentioned that Utah Jazz forward Andrei Kirilenko had signed CSKA Moscow in his native Russia.Recently, Andrei and some his teammates including Boston's Nenad Krstic decided to do a little bit of dancing including the lambada, the samba, and the macarena: (Courtesy of Project Spurs)

Kirilenko, Khryapa, Shaved, Krstic, Gordon: New members of Red Foxes dance team?

If anyone ever doubted the athleticism and talent of high-level cheerleading squads, the video below will change your mind. Check out CSKA Moscow studs Andrei Kirilenko, Viktor Khryapa, Alexei Shved, Nenad Krstic and Jamont Gordon attempting to learn a few of the Red Foxes’ simpler moves with little success. What’s that? You want some unfettered viewing of Europe’s most famous...

Video: Andrei Kirlenko and Nenad Krstic celebrate CSKA Moscow with dance medley

A few weeks ago, we brought your attention to Andrei Kirilenko's gun-crazy introduction at CSKA Moscow. It was an odd way to celebrate a big signing, but presumably this is just how they roll in Russia. We shouldn't judge other countries for customs that we don't understand. Maybe an AK-47 augurs good luck. It appears that assault weapons are not the only thing that...

Nenad Krstic and AK47 do the Macarena

No, it's not a joke. Yes, people in Russia apparently still do the Macarena. Check out the video above of our boy Curly dancing with Andrei Kirilenko and a couple other players, courtesy of The Basketball Jones. The Macarena starts at about 1:07. If you watch the whole thing, you will get to see a plethora of other horrible dance moves.
