A Center & Scorer and Move to Brooklyn?
However, a knee injury suffered against the LA Lakers on Dec. 22, 2006 has altered his path.
The 7-0 center after a long rehab was ahead of schedule and played well in the 2007-08 season opener. But that performance could not be repeated as it was clear his conditioning and knee were not up to what it should be to withstand the rigors of the NBA hardwood.
After months of being inactive but getting soon for a return to the practice court, Krstic is scheduled to chat with the fans to discuss his rehab and how he wants to be a part of the Nets for a long time.
Talking about a long time, the Nets All-Access News interviews Nets Official Scorer Herb Turetzky who just recently logged his 1,000th consecutive game. He goes way back to the ABA days as the scorer for the team but had to miss a game back in 1984 to take a team of former pro and college players to play a series of games in France and Belgium. Turetzky reveals some of his favorite memories as the official scorer.
Turetzky has been with the team with its various locations from Long Island, New York with the then New York Nets and then making the move over to New Jersey when the franchise joined the NBA and played on the campus of Rutgers University. And now, it looks like if he wants his streak to continue into the next decade, he will move with the team to Brooklyn, NY.
