Andrei Kirilenko Talks About Sausages, Adopting A Girl, And His Non-WoW Tattoo - The Downbeat - #554


   An absolutely fantastic interview with Andrei Kirilenko on Sports.ru.  He covers everything from his tattoo to his adoption, to playing in the NBA again and having his father in law's car stolen.  He also talks a bit about sponsorships,

What's the most unexpected thing you had to advertise?

In Russia I was offered to advertise some kind of sausages or wieners. And leather jackets, by the way. Some friends of mine offered it, I refused politely.
