This video of the Nets trying to understand Russian culture is pretty much the best thing ever

Posted on: January 11th, 2013 by Devin Kharpertian Comments

Highlights include:

  • Reggie Evans's nickname for Mikhail Prokhorov

  • No one having any clue exactly where Russia is, except Tornike Shengelia, who slyly grabs Taylor's arm and forces him to point correctly at the map

  • Brook Lopez having no clue how to say anything in Russian

  • Everyone's Russian hat

  • Everyone's reactions to whatever that small enormous-eared plush toy is

  • Everything Reggie Evans & MarShon Brooks do

Just go watch it and thank me later.


  1. Reggie and MarShon were great haha. MarShon looks like Carmelo at 1:46.

    Stanford, Providence, Iowa, and Kansas must be so proud.

    The jerseys should have everyone’s name in Russian on the back so everyone would know what it looks like.
