According to Brian T. Smith of the Salt Lake City Tribune, Jazz forward Andrei Kirilenko still plans to play for his country in the European Championships this summer.

Kirilenko is an unrestricted free agent this summer, and he has had some injury problems in the past, but clearly playing for his country is something that is important to Kirilenko. And with a lockout looming, playing in high-level Euro competition may be the best way for Kirilenko to keep his skills sharp while the owners and players attempt to hammer out a new CBA agreement.

    can anyone who doesn’t give a crap about the Jazz or AK47, tell what his tattoo is?

    um, ew…
    could he have possibly gotten an uglier tattoo?

    I’m from Utah, I saw it on the news, apparently, it’s his world of Warcraft character. My respect for him just dropped a little.

      It doesn’t even look “humanoid.”

      I’m so confused.
