    The Russian Guy showed up to practices, played hard, never complained, and would often have dinner with Hooper. Despite the fact that he only really played in Garbage Time, Kravtsov gave maximum effort when he would see the floor.

    Good luck with the Bucks! Maybe Milwaukee fans will be able to find the Ukraine on a map.

    Kravtsov scored his first point in the NBA before he had played a single minute:


    I wonder if Stuckey was credited with the assist?

    I enjoyed his pump fakes before his free throw release.

    One of the best Ukrainian Pistons of all time!

    His pump fakes in the Orlando summer league sometimes even faked me out at home watching on television.
    I remember the time that he cleanly caught a pass from Kenny English. ...It was beautiful man!

    TRG was Ukrainian? Oh man, we missed out on the nickname TUG.

    LOL. One of my greatest contributions to the forum was creating the TRG nickname. I may have to join a Milwaukee forum to make sure it sticks.

    The funniest part about that nickname was that he were from Ukraine.

    I'm glad we didn't make a similar mistake with our Norwegian Viking Guy.
