While the Brooklyn Nets and Atlanta Hawks will be facing off in London, England on Thursday, the events surrounding the game is already making headlines. The Nets had the opportunity to visit with Chelsea FC, one of the world’s premier soccer clubs. Below are some images from the meet and greet.
Garnett, 37, is clearly a big fan of the soccer team:
“I’m like a kid in a candy store right now!” He said.
Schürrle was impressed with the height of one of his biggest fans:
“Kevin Garnett was really, really tall. It’s unbelievable,” the 23-year-old said. ”But when I saw him it was good to see how this great player who achieved so many things was so happy to be at our stadium.”
