“I feel great. Look at me. I’m running like a young deer.”
Andrei Kirilenko of Russia, after dropping 35 points on 17 shots in the first day of Olympic basketball to lead his team to a win.
Timberwolves fans should be happy, they just signed Kirilenko and Russian point guard Alexey Shved who had 16 points and 13 assists in the win Sunday. For a day, GM David Kahn looks very smart.
