Andrei Kirilenko to Open a Hooters… In Russia

Photo Credit: AP Andrei Kirilenko is certainly no stranger to interesting news for a guy who isn’t necessarily a star in the NBA. You could start with the fact that his wife lets him sleep around (only annually though, poor guy), or that his free-agent signing made opposing GM’s call for an investigation.
