Video: Just #FreeToko Already

What’s that? You’ve been waiting years for five minutes of video highlights from Thursday night’s 39-point, 18-rebound, six-assist performance performance from Nets rookie Tornike Shengelia for the D-League Springfield Armor over the Maine Red Claws?

Video after the jump. You’re welcome. Now give me that time machine.

Many, many thanks to Scott McGrady of Crab Dribbles, the preeminent Maine Red Claws blog (and by that, I mean it’s the only one I know) for putting this together.
